Community Service


An important part of an Asheville School education is learning the value of community and service to others. During their time here, students engage in a variety of service, first in projects on campus and later in the greater Asheville community. Along the way, they work with classmates, faculty members and community members, both young and old, and gain valuable insight into themselves and others.

Through the school’s commitment to service, students learn that volunteerism contributes to their becoming responsible and compassionate citizens.

Fourth Form

Fourth Form students move into the greater community, volunteering with agencies and organizations that serve varied populations of the greater Asheville area -- from elementary school students, to the homeless and disadvantaged, to senior citizens.
