Students arrive at Asheville School from diverse ethnic, geographic, socioeconomic and religious backgrounds, and they bring with them a broad range of experiences, interests and talents.
Those rich differences come together at Asheville School and form the foundation of a caring and understanding community where students from all over the world live and learn, side by side, for four years.
With an annual enrollment of approximately 295 students, Asheville School is an intentionally small community. Students and faculty members know one another personally and call each other by name.
Over three-quarters 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, students leaders and other faculty members ready to celebrate a student's success, give advice, counsel or just listen.
"Coming here was the best decision I've ever made in my life. From my academic capability to my relationships with adults, to my social ability and my athletic ability – absolutely everything has grown. In every aspect of life, I have been growing as a person."
Olivia Waters, Class of 2016
