As a therapeutic boarding school, Asheville Academy focuses on individual strengths and solutions.

We use a multidisciplinary approach to address the individual challenges girls may face that includes:

    As every student’s journey is unique, our therapeutic boarding school provides a range of clinical expertise to ensure each girl gets the specific help she needs.

    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 Iowa 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.
