Asheville Academy, an accredited therapeutic boarding school for Minnesota youth, is focused on helping adolescents find lasting change. Asheville Academy, located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, provides a therapeutic environment for girls ages 10-14. Although the program is located away from Minnesota, we help families from all over the country.
Asheville Academy helps struggling Minnesota 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 Minnesota and their families find success.
When families from Minnesota 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. Minnesota 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 Minnesota. Sometimes, the girls’ healing process is easier when they are distanced from their environment. Students are able to focus on achieving lasting change after Asheville Academy when they are removed from distractions. For more information about how our therapeutic boarding school helps Minnesota families, please call 800-264-8709.

Minnesota girls grow into resilient and confident young women at Asheville Academy. As a therapeutic boarding school, Asheville Academy focuses on individual strengths and solutions.

Examples of our personalized therapeutic approach include:
Through our Equine and Animal Therapy program, students learn how to improve their communication skills, build responsibility, self-reflection, and healthy relationship patterns. Students have the opportunity to interact with horses, bunnies, chickens, pigs, and goats through our animal therapy program.
