Asheville Academy for Girls is an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Maryland 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. Although the program is located away from Maryland, we help families from all over the country.
As one of the top therapeutic boarding schools for Maryland girls, Asheville Academy has designed a unique therapeutic approach for struggling girls dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance disorder, or school refusal. Asheville Academy helps young girls from Maryland and their families find success through accredited academics, animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff.
Asheville Academy helps families from Maryland who say their family dynamic feels broken and has left 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 Maryland families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic.
Although Asheville Academy is not located in Maryland, we help families from across the United States. Sometimes, the girls’ healing process is easier when they are distanced from their environment. During their time at Asheville Academy, students are removed from distractions and are able to focus on achieving lasting change.
