Asheville Academy helps Maine 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. Although the program is located away from Maine, we help families from all over the country.
Asheville Academy has designed a unique therapeutic approach, as one of the top therapeutic boarding schools, for Maine 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 Maine and their families find success.
When families from Maine 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. Maine families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic through our family approach which includes family seminars and family therapy.
Although Asheville Academy is not located in Maine, we help families from across the United States. 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.
