Asheville Academy for Girls is an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Connecticut youth focused on helping adolescents find lasting change. Asheville Academy provides a therapeutic environment for girls ages 10-14 in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina. Even though our program is located in North Carolina, we help families from Connecticut and all over the nation.
Asheville Academy has designed a unique therapeutic approach, as one of the top therapeutic boarding schools, for Connecticut girls who are dealing with issues, such as depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance disorder, or school refusal. Asheville Academy helps young girls from Connecticut and their families find success through accredited academics, animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff.
When families from Connecticut 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. Connecticut families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic through our family approach which includes family seminars and family therapy.
Although Asheville Academy is not located in Connecticut, we’ve helped families from Connecticut and all over the country. 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.
