Academics

Academic Overview

Asheville School's academic course of study is rigorous and stresses a traditional core curriculum of humanities, mathematics, science, foreign language and the arts.

Through the study of these subjects, students learn the fundamentals of good writing, critical thinking and clear communication -- skills they will draw on in college and beyond.

While the substance of the curriculum is traditional, teachers use innovation to connect the subject matter to their students and keep it relevant.

The Asheville School classroom is a warm and inviting place. Class size is small, allowing students to engage in respectful discussion and debate with their peers or one-on-one guidance with their teacher.

Students here have the ability to be simultaneously excited about their classes, while also being serious about what they're learning.
