Asheville Academy, an accredited therapeutic boarding school for California youth, is focused on helping adolescents find lasting change. Located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, Asheville Academy provides a therapeutic environment primarily for girls ages 10 to 14. Although the program is located away from California, we help families from all over the country.
Asheville Academy helps struggling California girls dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance disorder, or school refusal as one of the top therapeutic boarding schools in the country. Asheville Academy helps young girls from California and their families find success through accredited academics, animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff.
When families from California come to Asheville Academy, they often say their family dynamic feels broken, leaving them and their daughters with feelings of failure, low self-respect, or family distort. Through our family approach which includes family seminars and family therapy, California families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic.
Although Asheville Academy is not located in California, we help families from across the United States. Distancing girls from their current environment can be an important part of the healing process. During their time at Asheville Academy, students are removed from distractions and are able to focus on achieving lasting change.

Asheville Academy for Girls teaches California girls to be resilient and confident young women. As a therapeutic boarding school, Asheville Academy focuses on individual strengths and solutions. Our expert staff helps girls start a journey towards the enriched life they are capable of and deserve based on our clinical model that focuses on helping girls emerge from problem-centered and self-defeating patterns. Some of the therapeutic approaches that help us address the individual challenges girls may face include:
By building relationships with our animals during equine therapy, students improve communication skills, responsibility, personal growth, self-reflection, and healthy relationship patterns. Our therapeutic boarding school provides California girls with the opportunity to interact with horses, bunnies, chickens, pigs, and goats.
To ensure each girl gets the specific help she needs on her unique journey, our therapeutic boarding school provides a range of clinical expertise. Our licensed professional counselors are certified in a variety of therapeutic techniques, including Art Therapy, Family Therapy, Therapeutic Wilderness Interventions, and Clinical Addictions.
Asheville Academy helps California families reconnect. Families work directly with their child’s therapist, participate in family seminars and therapy, and have the option to make campus visits. As girls transition through our program, we encourage families to communicate regularly as a way to repair family dynamics.
