School Gallery


Asheville Academy for Girls utilizes an accredited, safety-based, developmentally appropriate approach to create one of the best therapeutic boarding schools in the country. It is a therapeutic boarding school geared towards recovering relationships, developing coping methods, and instilling confidence in its students.

Asheville Academy, a therapeutic boarding school for girls 10-14, offers your daughter a change of pace, which is key to dealing with various problems. Being removed from a familiar environment encourages girls to reevaluate themselves. Some who attend have a mental illness, such as depression; others have simply encountered too much stress. Whatever the issue, at a therapeutic boarding school, it will be addressed properly.
