Overview

Founded in 1900, Asheville School is an intentionally small co-ed boarding school set in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, our supportive community is a place where all are known and valued. In their time on our campus, students develop strong character and essential life skills through a rigorous academic curriculum and robust co-curricular offerings. They leave here ready to shape a changing world.

Our beautiful home along 300 idyllic acres is a safe haven where students learn and thrive both in and outside of the classroom. Framed by mountains, criss-crossed by walking paths, and dotted by pines, it is a place where we feel inspired, connected, and welcome. This special stamp of soil is more than a picturesque learning environment; it defines our experience.
