We are a team of caring teachers, therapists and mentors dedicated to serving girls ages 10 – 14. Students arrive on our campus struggling and in need of guidance, and time and time again, we see them transform under our care as they gain new hope, greater understanding, and enhanced confidence and self-awareness.
Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of seeing many families healed. Nothing compares to the moment when parents arrive on campus and their child comes running to embrace them. With tears of joy streaming down their face, they hold their child close, their hope restored and bond with their child stronger than ever.
These cherished moments are the reason we dedicate our lives to helping young girls.
Asheville Academy is a leading program for struggling girls because we believe in the healing power of a tranquil campus; we have a passionate, experienced staff; we offer clinical excellence that meets the needs of our students; and we have an exceptionally caring and nurturing community.
During their time with us, students take part in a small, supportive classroom environment that encourages confidence and success in the classroom by catering to the individualized learning style of each student.
Girls build social skills, restore family relationships, establish healthy boundaries with technology and social media, develop stronger communication skills, and envision success in relationships.
Parents see a brighter future as their daughters learn how to overcome academic, social and emotional challenges, set and reach goals, and create a world filled with friendship, laughter, and positive experiences.
In our supportive, nurturing environment students learn to advocate for their needs, recover and overcome from setbacks, and build impulse control as they become more mature and resilient.
Girls build their confidence through incremental progress, positive psychology which reminds them of their strengths, and activities that allow girls to challenge themselves in a safe environment.
Your daughter will become more aware of the thoughts and feelings of others, and develop genuine thankfulness through service work, community work, equine assisted therapy, reflection, and goal-setting.
“I have dedicated my life to working with students who are struggling with the pressures of middle school. There is nothing more powerful than seeing our young girls blossom into happy, successful young women.
We are dedicated to helping young girls grow and thrive by instilling the skills they need to form meaningful relationships, academic success and personal happiness. We would be honored to help your daughter blossom here as so many have before.”
