Middle School Open House Sessions for Prospective Families

French Broad River Academy, an independent middle school in Asheville with separate campuses for boys and girls, is enrolling now for Fall 2024 in select grades.

Attend an Open House session to learn more about our Girls and Boys programs that combine academics, outdoor adventure, service, and travel. Meet our School Director, visit with current parents, and tour our beautiful riverside campuses during this one-hour session. Applying students are also invited to attend, depending on parent preference.

If you can't make it to an Open House, we are happy to set up a one-on-one campus tour. We can't wait to hear from you!

Parent Testimonials

"I see character building in every aspect of school. From the classroom academic expectations, to the field lessons, to the interactions with faculty throughout the week. Each experience is consistent and the expectations are clearly defined. I find it extraordinary that the connections are made in so many ways in one week."

Ani, Current Parent

"Everything [our daughter] has achieved academically in middle school, as well as her social emotional growth, has exceeded our expectations.  We feel so very blessed to have had the chance to send her to such a wonderful school.  Please keep doing all of the hard work that you do to change the lives of your students.  And know that your passion, hard work, and dedication to making this experience possible is much appreciated."     

Laura & Bryan, Alumni Parents

"As a parent, I couldn’t be more thrilled to have [my son] at FBRA. I have witnessed his growth over the 1 1/2 years of this amazing opportunity for his education…. I feel that our decision to send my son to FBRA was an excellent choice and investment into his future academics….Thank you for what you guys offer and do."
