Asheville Academy for Girls utilizes the residential model of the traditional boarding school to create a home-like therapeutic boarding school setting. We offer a safe and comfortable setting for girls to learn new ways to interact with peers, adults, and their families.
Asheville Academy for Girls (AAG) is for girls ages 10-14, located in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. Specializing in developmentally appropriate interventions for young girls, the foundation of our program lies in relationship-based treatment—emphasizing high levels of family intervention, emotional safety, and healthy boundaries.
Recognized by the state of North Carolina as a certified non-public school, our academic classes are taught in a conventional classroom setting by certified secondary education and special education teachers.
Our families’ most common reason for placement is chronic disruption to the family system along with the inability of their daughters to find success in school, develop meaningful friendships with peers, and/or engage in activities they used to love.
Asheville Academy for Girls also provides state-of-the-art treatment for girls suffering from co-morbid anxiety or mood disorders, depression, low self-esteem, negative self-perception, learning challenges, and oppositional behavior.
