Welcome to the Asheville School Parents' Page!

Parents are an integral part of Asheville School's community. We strive for all families to be informed and connected to their children, whether they live 5 miles from the school or 5,000.

The information linked below will help you navigate the ins and outs of our community. Anytime you have a question, please feel free to contact me, Lynn Gilliland, at gillilandl@ashevilleschool.org.

School Psychologist

The school employs an on-campus, full-time professional school psychologist who is available to students, families, faculty and staff for the purpose of assisting with various emotional and social concerns that may arise.

Short-term, individual counseling is provided by the school psychologist and can be obtained by self-referral or through consultation with another community member. Should more extensive or longer-term counseling be needed, the school psychologist coordinates the referral to an appropriate outside professional and arranges for transportation to the practitioner’s office.

The school psychologist subscribes to a policy of confidentiality in all dealings with persons who seek help, though safety concerns provide an exception to such a policy. When issues regarding safety arise, the confidentiality policy will defer to safety concerns.

The school psychologist’s office is located on the middle level of Skinner Library.

Learning Center

The Learning Center is a resource for students and teachers. We work with students on developing their organizational and study skills in an effort to help them become independent learners. We also provide daily help in specific subjects.

For most students, the Learning Center is a voluntary resource. Students may be assigned for a period of three weeks to 10 months, depending on their progress. These students come in daily during their free period and work with the Learning Center staff.

Most students stop in for help with:

  • Math
  • College essays
  • Lab reports
  • English papers
  • Study skills
  • Time management

We educate students and families about the nuances of admission, advise students about appropriate and interesting college options that best suit their needs, and support students as they successfully complete the application process.
