French Broad River Academy is an independent middle school (grades 6-8) in Asheville, North Carolina with dual riverfront programs for boys and girls. We integrate rigorous academics with outdoor adventure, service projects, and international travel to help our students become confident, compassionate leaders, ready to take on the world.
Our mission is to build character and integrity for a lifetime of learning, service, and leadership.
We offer a competitive academic program in tandem with outdoor education and leadership opportunities. We have two campuses nestled in the heart of Western North Carolina that take full advantage of the region’s plentiful whitewater rivers, lush mountains, and vast public lands for outdoor experiential learning. International travel, service learning, character development, and leadership are additional key components of the FBRA experience.
