Service learning is an important part of an Asheville School education. August 18 marked opening day, and almost immediately students have had the chance to take part in service opportunities across the Asheville area.
An important part of an Asheville School education is learning the value of community and service to others. During their time here, students engage in a variety of service, first in projects on campus and later in the greater Asheville community. Along the way, they work with classmates, faculty members and community members, both young and old, and gain valuable insight into themselves and others.
Through the school's commitment to service, students learn that volunteerism contributes to their becoming responsible and compassionate citizens.
Finding inspiration through service work at school and abroad, rising Asheville School seniors Nicole Alleyne and Maggie Chang have spearheaded Camp Good Trouble -- a day camp about empowerment, mindset, and building confidence for the youth of Asheville.
Asheville School prioritizes a purposefully-small community where every student is known, loved, and supported through their high school career. This year, a group of Asheville School students had the opportunity to create those same supportive connections with local elementary school students through a new service-based afternoon activity.
