I was very fortunate to have been able to attend Asheville School. The academics are challenging but my preparation for college was more than I could have ever expected. As a student you recognize that each faculty member has a genuine care about your well-being and is invested in your growth as a young adult. The sports facilities are state of the art and offer everything from groomed playing fields, weight rooms, gymnasiums and an indoor pool! The arts program is also stellar including theater, and music programs. Asheville School is an exemplar of diversity with a strong percentage of its student body being from abroad. I would recommend that anyone considering Asheville School to visit. Once you drive up Asheville School Road and look to your left and gaze upon the rolling hills and Mount Pisgah you will understand why so many people, regardless of where you are in the world, call this wonderful place home. Go Blues!

Asheville School has unparalled academics that truly set you up for the upcoming college work ahead. The administration is constantly involved in the student lives, and teachers are more than qualified to teach. The campus is beautiful, with rolling hills and trees that turn bright shades of orange, yellow, and red during the fall. I would highly recommend attending!
So many schools tout their sense of family and community spirit, but how many of them actually live it? Asheville School does! This is an environment where everyone is known and cared for; not only by the faculty, but also by peers. Student leaders take their responsibility seriously and they serve the community as prefects and proctors---leading by example.
