Asheville School has long been transforming the lives of both the bright, motivated students who attend and the lives of the teachers, coaches, advisors, and faculty members who guide, instruct and mentor them. Because of its intentionally small student body, Asheville School boasts a magnetic, purpose-driven school community, where every student is known, loved, challenged, nurtured and celebrated. In fact, Asheville School operates on the premise that a profound academic endeavor must begin with peer and adult relationships that inspire, stimulate, and endure. Asheville School is truly unique.
Founded in 1900, Asheville School has a rich history of creating an experience where capable and compassionate young men and women thrive. Our students readily gain admission to the nation's leading colleges and universities. But more importantly, they graduate from Asheville School with the ability to excel at a higher level in college and in life.
While we challenge our students academically, we also encourage them to develop into mature, independent thinkers within this safe and enriching environment. At Asheville School, we are small enough to know our students by name, while supporting them on their path to learning excellent study habits, writing skills, and developing meaningful friendships with their teachers and peers.
Situated among the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, Asheville School is located in a thriving small city voted numerous times as one of the top places to live in America. Asheville School's community is devoted to the pursuit of excellence in everything, but you need to visit our campus to fully understand what makes Asheville School so special.
I encourage you to browse through our award-winning website, reach out to current and past parents with questions, and connect with our alumni. Most importantly, I welcome your call or email to the admission office to schedule your own campus visit. We want you to take a student-led tour, visit a class, attend a seated meal, listen to a chapel talk, meet experienced members of the community, and see for yourself what makes Asheville School the South's premier co-ed boarding school. What you will discover, I assure you, will motivate you to pursue admission to Asheville School.We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our one-of-a-kind school community.
All my best,
Director of Admission
