For the average 10-14 year old girl, the type of challenges they face are dramatically different than ones faced by other adolescent age groups. They are dealing with the start of puberty and everything that comes with being in middle school: bullying, a new social hierarchy, and low self esteem. Our specific focus on young girls in this age group helps create a caring and developmentally appropriate environment for tween girls.
Asheville Academy for Girls understands how important it is to involve the entire family throughout the therapeutic process. Because of this, we have designed programming which helps rebuild and reinforce family relationships. Every week, we conduct family therapy sessions which ties the work we are doing with your daughter at the program back into the home environment she will return to after graduation.
