Asheville School is unlike any school I have encountered.
It is located in a vibrant, lively city full of art, music and eclectic food, set among breathtaking Southern mountains and trout-filled rivers.
It encompasses 300 acres of hiking paths, horse trails, fields, woodlands and streams.
It enjoys the advantage of elegant Tudor-style buildings registered as historic landmarks, along with state-of-the-art technology and athletic facilities.
It is not, however, Asheville School's significant physical advantages that make this place special.
Asheville School is about people and relationships.
We believe that a good school is one in which every student is known and loved, and we can do that at Asheville School because we are purposefully small, and we are predominantly boarding.
In our intimate residential community, we eat meals family style, we come together daily as a full school in either chapel or convocation, and we rub elbows in dormitories and around campus.
Most prospective students have been high achievers in their previous schools, both in and out of the classroom.
But equally important to a student's demonstrated academic ability is the motivation to carry on Asheville School's high standards and tradition of excellence.
A student must be a good citizen and have the desire and drive to contribute to the success of the overall school community.
