Blues Ignite is an initiative that aims to combine technology, the arts, and opportunities to engage with the broader Asheville community by providing opportunities to develop a myriad of cutting-edge skills in technology.
We believe students should feel empowered by technology. Asheville School's technology initiatives aim to empower, inspire, and build confidence in students so they head into college knowing more about who they are, what they love to do and how to succeed in today’s increasingly technological world.
Asheville School has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2018–2021 for its use of technology to prepare students for college and for life and its commitment to teaching students Apple’s Swift programming language during its co-ed summer app development camp.
Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of innovation, leadership and educational excellence that use Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. These schools showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching and the school environment and have documented results of academic accomplishment.
