Why Asheville Academy Works

Our Mission: To Help Girls Heal

Asheville Academy for Girls is a therapeutic boarding school exclusively for middle-school girls ages 10-14 where young girls truly find themselves.  We are the right place at the right time for middle-school girls because we use developmentally appropriate treatments designed specifically for girls this age.

Our program works because we don’t just talk about it – we provide the 24/7 nurturing environment that our girls need.  At Asheville Academy, it’s all about relationships, as we empower young girls to restore and repair relationships with themselves, families, and peers.

What Makes Asheville Academy Unique?
