Asheville School



School Life

Students arrive at Asheville School from all over the world, and they bring with them a broad range of backgrounds, interests and talents.

With about 295 students, Asheville School is an intentionally small community where students and faculty members know one another personally and call each other by name.

About 80% of our students are boarders and reside in one of three residential halls: Anderson Hall, Lawrence Hall or Kehaya House. Every student learns responsibility to oneself and respect for others, and develop bonds with friends that will last a lifetime.

Never far away are dorm parents, student leaders and other faculty members ready to celebrate a student's success, give advice, counsel or just listen.


We value academics at Asheville School, but we also value fun. Our Student Activities Director schedules entertainment during student downtime. On-campus pursuits include barbecues, athletic tournaments, game nights, movies, school dances and more. Students also take in concerts, plays and other art events, movies and sporting events in Asheville.

Asheville School hosts enough student organizations to meet almost any taste. Students may bolster their writing and editing in publications like The Ashnoca newspaper, Blue & White yearbook or the Review literary and visual arts magazine. Or they may hone their leadership skills in clubs like Student Council, Students for Environmental Action or the Mitchell Cabinet service organization.
