ABOUT

Students entering Asheville Academy often have a history of academic struggles including school refusal, learning differences, lack of effort, or defiance. These surface behaviors often mask underlying stressors such as social isolation, bullying or feelings of being overwhelmed. Our girls greatly benefit from being in therapeutic schools.

Influences

In order to help your child succeed academically, we’ve designed a small, supportive learning environment, that takes individual learning needs into account. We begin by assuring that each student has the tools they need in order to achieve: effective note-taking an study strategies, organizational and time management skills, and stress management. In addition, foundations in reading, writing, and mathematics are developed and practiced in tandem with 21st century abilities to research, assess validity and bias in sources, think critically, collaborate, and communicate.

EQUIPMENT

We have removed the negative elements of the traditional school environment: cookie-cutter teaching, overcrowded classes, and social cliques, all of which act as barriers to a student’s self-esteem, self-efficacy, and academic success. Our ultimate goal at Timbersong Black Mountain is to provide a structured and supportive learning community in order to empower students by fostering a positive relationship to learning while maintaining a rigorous standards-based curriculum.
