Asheville School

A coeducational secondary school with an enrollment of 248 students, Asheville School works to prepare students for college and for life, and to provide an atmosphere in which all members of a diverse school community appreciate and strive for excellence – an atmosphere which nurtures character and fosters the development of mind, body, and spirit. Asheville School was founded in 1900 by Charles Andrews Mitchell and Newton Mitchell Anderson, who founded the University School in Cleveland in 1890. The founding of these two schools was a daring experiment in preparatory education, as it challenged the time-honored system of classical education of British origin. Our school motto, Vitae Excelsioris Limen, translates to “threshold for a higher life.”
