The Allure of Asheville
Tucked between the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains, Asheville is a one-of-a-kind city buzzing with character, creativity, and a strong local community. A haven for adventurers and artists, our mystic blue mountain town makes a storied backdrop for your school years, with plenty to experience and explore.
The rolling landscape and vibrant city are a true extension of our campus—and a key part of your Asheville School education. This is learning at its very best.
Many come to Western North Carolina for its natural wonders, and for good reason. Ample opportunities for hiking, biking, paddling, and rafting pepper our peaks and valleys, all against the backdrop of lush greenery, roaring falls, and misty views. From the beautiful French Broad River to the meandering trails that snake through our region, Asheville’s natural spaces provide endless excuses to get outdoors.
