Asheville Academy for Girls is an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Colorado youth 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. We help families from all over the United States and around the globe, including Colorado.
As one of the top therapeutic boarding schools for Colorado girls, Asheville Academy has designed a unique therapeutic approach for struggling girls dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance disorder, or school refusal. Asheville Academy offers accredited academics, animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff to help young girls from Colorado and their families find success.
When families from Colorado 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. Colorado families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic through our family approach which includes family seminars and family therapy.
We help families from across the United States, even though Asheville Academy is not located in Colorado. Sometimes, the girls’ healing process is easier when they are distanced from their environment. Students are able to focus on achieving lasting change after Asheville Academy when they are removed from distractions.

Asheville Academy for Girls teaches Colorado girls to be resilient and confident young women. At Asheville Academy, we have built a therapeutic boarding school that focuses on individual strengths and solutions. Our clinical model focuses on helping girls start a journey towards the enriched life they are capable of and deserve by emerging from problem-centered and self-defeating patterns with the help of our expert staff. We use a multidisciplinary approach to address the individual challenges girls may face that includes:
By building relationships with our animals during equine therapy, students improve communication skills, responsibility, personal growth, self-reflection, and healthy relationship patterns. The animal therapy program at our therapeutic boarding school includes opportunities for Colorado girls to interact with horses, bunnies, chickens, pigs, and goats.
At our therapeutic boarding school, every girl’s journey is unique. To ensure each girl gets the specific help she needs, we provide a range of clinical expertise. Our team of licensed professional counselors have training, certifications, or licensure in multiple therapeutic techniques including, Art Therapy, Family Therapy, Therapeutic Wilderness Interventions, and Clinical Addictions Licensure.
Asheville Academy helps Colorado 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.
