Asheville School wins CASE III Grand Award for app

Asheville School’s mobile app received top honors in “Best Practices in Marketing and Communication” from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) on February 18.

The app received a Grand Award in the category of mobile app, the top award given by CASE. Loyola University-New Orleans received an Award of Excellence in the same category. Colleges, universities and independent schools all compete across the Southeast for these annual awards.  Asheville School was one of only two independent schools to receive a Grand Award this year in any of the 68 categories.

Perhaps even more impressive is that fact that Asheville School’s Director of Communications Bob Williams and Technology Coordinator Charles Long developed the app in house.

“We’re appreciative of the recognition, as this app was one of the most ambitious projects either of us has accomplished in our 10-plus years at Asheville School,” Williams says. “It’s an honor any time we can compete with communications offices at colleges and universities that have much greater resources.”

The award-winning app shows how Asheville School strives to provide the best and most convenient forms of communication to our extended community – including families of students, prospective families, alumni, and friends of the school.
The Asheville School app features news articles, photo galleries, videos, calendar events, a virtual tour, and more! It also makes it easy to share what’s going on at Asheville School on various social media networks. Visit www.ashevilleschool.org/app to download the app today.
Located in the mountains of North Carolina, Asheville School is a nationally acclaimed co-ed, college preparatory, boarding and day school, enrolling approximately 280 students from 20 states and 17 countries. Recent graduates have been accepted to Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, Caltech, UCLA, UNC-Chapel Hill, Davidson, NC State, University of Virginia, Emory, Duke, Wake Forest, and Yale among others.
