Asheville Academy, an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Kentucky 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. Even though our program is located in North Carolina, we help families from Kentucky and all over the nation.
Asheville Academy helps struggling Kentucky girls dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance disorder, or school refusal as one of the top therapeutic boarding schools in the country. Through their accredited academics, use of animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff, Asheville Academy helps young girls from Kentucky and their families find success.
Many families from Kentucky 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. Kentucky 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 Kentucky. 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.
