Preserving Asheville School’s Campus for a Lifetime
Alumni, faculty and friends of Asheville School are embracing the idea of preserving the School’s 205 acres of undeveloped woodland. The school hopes to grow its endowment by $10.25 million as it preserves undeveloped acres of Asheville School’s land. Alumni and friends may preserve an acre with a gift of $50,000 to the school. All committed acres will be placed in a trust, and will remain in their natural state for students and alumni to enjoy for centuries ahead.
Through our mountaineering program, students develop an appreciation for nature. We have the luxury of working, learning, and living in a stunning natural classroom. We're constantly reminded of nature's gifts. Our mountaineering program has recently achieved AEE Accreditation. This accreditation was inspired, in part by the program's focus on respect, preservation, and conservation of our environment. We now have this land trust to ensure that our students can continue to learn and grow surrounded by breath-taking landscapes.
Thanks to the investment of the following individuals we have preserved nearly 100 acres of our pristine campus. If you are interested in preserving an acre and establishing your Asheville School legacy, please contact John Thorsen, Assistant Head of School for Advancement.
