“Over the past year, our son had made significant progress both physically and emotionally thanks to the time he spends at Asheville Farmstead School. The educators are fully invested in the success of each child and are amazing at giving them each the specific attention they need. As a family, we are so happy that this loving school has become part of our lives and would recommend it wholeheartedly."
- Proud Parent
Asheville Farmstead is located on 25 acres of forested land tucked into a quiet cove 20 minutes from downtown Asheville in Candler. The goal of Asheville Farmstead is to connect students to an increased awareness of the natural world, the complexities of agriculture and the interrelations of living communities.
“It is hard to find educators you trust like family to take care of your child. We have found two at Asheville Farmstead School. They balance each other perfectly and they listen (and remember) our parenting preferences as well. Not only did we find an amazing school curriculum but a great second home for our family."
