Asheville Academy for Girls is an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Louisiana 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. We help families from all over the United States and around the globe, including Louisiana.
Asheville Academy has designed a unique therapeutic approach, as one of the top therapeutic boarding schools, for Louisiana 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 Louisiana and their families find success.
When families from Louisiana 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. Our family approach integrates family seminars and family therapy to help Louisiana families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic.
Although Asheville Academy is not located in Louisiana, we’ve helped families from Louisiana and all over the country. Distancing girls from their current environment can be an important part of the healing process. Students are able to focus on achieving lasting change after Asheville Academy when they are removed from distractions.

At Asheville Academy for Girls, Louisiana girls transform into resilient and confident young women. As a therapeutic boarding school, Asheville Academy focuses on individual strengths and solutions. Our clinical model focuses on helping girls start a journey towards the enriched life they are capable of and deserve by emerging from problem-centered and self-defeating patterns with the help of our expert staff. Some of the therapeutic approaches that help us address the individual challenges girls may face include:
Participating in Asheville Academy’s Equine and Animal Therapy program helps students improve communication skills, build responsibility, personal growth, self-reflection, and healthy relationship patterns. Students have the opportunity to interact with horses, bunnies, chickens, pigs, and goats through our animal therapy program.
At our therapeutic boarding school, every girl’s journey is unique. To ensure each girl gets the specific help she needs, we provide a range of clinical expertise. 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 Louisiana families reconnect. Families work directly with their child’s therapist, participate in family seminars and therapy, and have the option to make campus visits. Families are encouraged to maintain regular communication with their daughter as she transitions through our program to help repair family dynamics.
