Our campus is filled with a wide variety of animals. Strolling across our private rural campus nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains, one might see horses grazing in the meadows, goats that insist on being petted, and Ruby Sue, our beloved pot-bellied pig who loves to be cuddled. You may even run into a few chickens, bunnies, or one of our friendly dogs like Gatsby.
Many students find the opportunity to interact with horses and other therapy animals to be the most fun and rewarding component of their time at Asheville Academy. Each of these animals adds something unique and special to the animal therapy program, and are loved by our students.
