We Help Girls with Behavioral Issues

Getting Help for Your Daughter

Your daughter’s behavioral issues can be disruptive for the entire family. When your daughter is pushing boundaries, lashing out, being disrespectful and getting into arguments, it puts a strain on family relationships. If your daughter’s oppositional defiance and anger issues have impacted her academic and social success, it may sometimes feel like those behaviors will never change at home. Therapeutic boarding schools help young girls stay on track academically and heal family relationships. 

Asheville Academy Can Help  

Asheville Academy is one of the nation’s leading therapeutic boarding schools for middle school girls with behavioral problems. Located near Asheville, North Carolina, our campus provides a variety of activities and experiences that help young girls grow. Our program is certified by CARF to provide the highest quality of therapeutic care. As a therapeutic boarding school, our academic program is accredited by Advanc-ED to make sure credits girls earn through our classes transfer back home. 

Our program helps young girls struggling with behavioral issues:

  • Gain self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Regulate and manage emotions
  • Learn to follow rules and directions
  • Improve relationship building skills
  • Work on impulse control
  • Repair damaged family relationships

A Therapeutic Approach Designed for Young Girls: 

Middle school is a difficult period for many young girls as they go through puberty, change friend groups, and begin to explore their personal identity. Asheville Academy is a therapeutic boarding school for girls ages 10-14 struggling with emotional or behavioral issues that have made this transition harder. Our small, close-knit family program focuses exclusively on the unique developmental needs of younger, preteen girls. 

Our hope is to help prevent the challenges girls face from escalating into something more serious later in life. Addressing the needs of a girl at this age can be incredibly powerful. Combining a traditional school setting with a strong clinical program that incorporates a variety of experiential therapies helps young girls overcome behavioral issues and thrive in multiple areas of their lives.

We Can Help Your Daughter Achieve Success

Our compassionate clinical team at Asheville Academy has years of experience helping young girls and their families reconnect. We take a personalized therapeutic approach that considers the individual strengths, needs, and goals of every student throughout their time at Asheville Academy. Our clinical model emphasizes helping students identify their strengths, challenge negative beliefs, and break unhealthy patterns so they can find the success they deserve.

We don’t believe that young girls with behavioral issues are troubled. We understand that they struggle with being aware of their emotions and managing them in a healthy and constructive way. We are available around-the-clock to support girls when they are feeling overwhelmed. Our goal is to teach girls how to apply the skills they’ve learned in forming healthier relationships with peers struggling with similar issues, mentors, and their families.

Is Asheville Academy the right choice for your daughter?

  • Parents report that their girl’s troubling behavior starts at home and then begins to creep into their school and social life.
  • Many Asheville Academy parents report their girls can sabotage family efforts to move forward or make a decision.
  • Perhaps school has become so socially challenging or emotionally complex she may be looking for ways to avoid attending. She may not reach out to friends or participate in clubs and instead, she retreats more into electronics or books.
  • Sometimes families comment that school is difficult for their child and is starting to worsen.
  • Parents often mention that their child doesn’t have friends or has only one or two close friends and can be too demanding or controlling in those relationships.
