State of the Art
Asheville School's athletic facilities are considered among the best in the Southeast. Carter Court (equipped with stadium seating) has played host to NCISAA state basketball championships, and the Ambler Pool has held numerous CAA Conference championship swim meets over the past decade.
Our outdoor track surrounding our football field has been chosen for CAA Conference championships, and our beautiful, yet rigorous cross country course has hosted CAA Conferences and Buncombe County and NCISAA Cross Country championships.

Asheville School's Rodgers Memorial Athletic Center houses the basketball and volleyball courts in the stunning Carter Gymnasium; the Ambler Pool, an indoor heated pool with electronic timing system; the South Gym, a second gymnasium; a state-of-the-art fitness center and weight room; locker rooms; and other features. The entire complex was renovated in 2003 and is one of the finest facilities of its kind in the region.
In the surrounding area, student athletes practice and compete on the field in McNaughton Stadium, Arnold Field Hockey/Lacrosse Field, two soccer fields, Lewis Baseball Field, a challenging cross country course, which features natural wooded trails, and the Baxter Taylor Tennis Center.
