Although the program is located away from Missouri, 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 Missouri girls who are dealing with issues, such as depression, anxiety, oppositional defiance disorder, or school refusal. Asheville Academy helps young girls from Missouri and their families find success through accredited academics, animal and equine therapy, and experienced and caring staff.
Asheville Academy helps families from Missouri 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 Missouri 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 Missouri. 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.

Asheville Academy, a leading therapeutic boarding school, recognizes that students have individual strengths and benefit from personalized 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. Examples of our personalized therapeutic approach include:
By building relationships with our animals during equine therapy, students improve communication skills, responsibility, personal growth, self-reflection, and healthy relationship patterns. The animal therapy program at our therapeutic boarding school includes opportunities for Missouri girls to interact with horses, bunnies, chickens, pigs, and goats.
