Asheville School’s academic experience will challenge you, will teach you the fundamentals of good writing, and will build a strong foundation of excellence you’ll appreciate for a lifetime.
Our curriculum stresses knowledge of key subjects that colleges look for and that are important for you to know: Humanities (English and history), mathematics, science, foreign languages and the arts. You’ll learn in small classes that emphasize collaboration and independent thinking.
Our curriculum includes a Senior Demonstration in which you’ll write a series of papers on a subject you select. During the final stage of the “demo,” you’ll defend your paper before a panel of faculty members. The project promotes the kind of original thinking you’re not likely to encounter until graduate school.
During your Chapel Talk - a senior year rite of passage - you’ll stand before the entire school and talk about an idea, belief or experience of special significance.
Our goal is to help you attend the college best suited to your interests and talents. Each year, Asheville School graduates go on to flourish at many of the nation’s finest colleges and universities including Vanderbilt, Harvard, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, Duke, Bates, Stanford, University of Pennsylvania, California Institute of Technology, Boston University and UNC-Chapel Hill.
