Asheville Academy helps Florida teens find lasting change at our accredited therapeutic boarding school. 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 Florida and all over the nation.
Asheville Academy has designed a unique therapeutic approach, as one of the top therapeutic boarding schools, for Florida girls who are 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 Florida and their families find success.
Many families from Florida come to Asheville Academy saying their family dynamic feels broken, leaving them and their daughters with feelings of failure, low self-respect, or family distort. Our family approach integrates family seminars and family therapy to help Florida 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 Florida. Distancing girls from their current environment can be an important part of the healing process.
