Asheville Academy, an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Michigan youth, is focused on helping adolescents find lasting change. Located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, Asheville Academy provides a therapeutic environment primarily for girls ages 10 to 14. Even though our program is located in North Carolina, we help families from Michigan and all over the nation.
Asheville Academy helps struggling Michigan 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. Asheville Academy offers accredited academics, animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff to help young girls from Michigan and their families find success.
Many families from Michigan 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. Our family approach integrates family seminars and family therapy to help Michigan families reconnect, repair, and rebuild a happier, healthier dynamic.
We help families from across the United States, even though Asheville Academy is not located in Michigan. Sometimes, the girls’ healing process is easier when they are distanced from their environment. At Asheville Academy, students are removed from distractions and able to focus on achieving lasting change.
