About

Founded in 1900, Asheville School is one of the few remaining true small boarding schools in America.

This is a nurturing community, where our students and faculty genuinely know one another — thanks to family-style seated meals, senior chapel talks and century-old traditions.

We offer a rigorous college preparatory program. Many of our graduates are accepted to the most prestigious schools in the country. In fact, the majority of our recent graduates are attending colleges and universities Barron's rates as "highly selective" and "most selective."

We teach 21st century and timeless skills - critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity - in a traditional setting, where students are known and loved.

Our acceptance rate is 40 percent, and we have alumni in all 50 states and in about 35 countries around the world.

Our 300-acre campus, with pastoral fields encircled by the Blue Ridge Mountains, is nestled in the city of Asheville, North Carolina. In fact, Architectural Digest named Asheville School the most beautiful private high school in North Carolina in 2018.
