Asheville Academy, an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Delaware youth, is 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. We help families from all over the United States and around the globe, including Delaware.
Asheville Academy has designed a unique therapeutic approach, as one of the top therapeutic boarding schools, for Delaware girls who are dealing with issues, such as depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance disorder, or school refusal. Through their accredited academics, use of animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff, Asheville Academy helps young girls from Delaware and their families find success.
When families from Delaware 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, Delaware families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic.
We help families from across the United States, even though Asheville Academy is not located in Delaware. Sometimes, distance from their current environment can be an important part of the girls’ healing process. Students are able to focus on achieving lasting change after Asheville Academy when they are removed from distractions.
