Saturday, August 18, marks the 119th opening day for Asheville School, which welcomes a record number of students for the 12th consecutive year. The school's 293 students will travel to Asheville from 19 states and 16 countries to make up the school's tight-knit, motivated and diverse student body.
Asheville School has been ranked the best boarding high school in North Carolina by Niche, a website devoted to "connecting people to their future schools, neighborhoods and workplaces."
Finding inspiration through service work at school and abroad, rising Asheville School seniors Nicole Alleyne and Maggie Chang have spearheaded Camp Good Trouble -- a day camp about empowerment, mindset, and building confidence for the youth of Asheville.
