Welcome to Charles D. Owen High

Welcome to Owen High School, where our motto is "I AM a Warhorse: Integrity, Attitude, and Maturity. We are located in Swannanoa, where generations of graduates take pride in growing up in "The Valley”. We're just a few minutes away from downtown Black Mountain and 12 miles east of Asheville. We are a member of the 2-A Western Highlands Conference, participate in 18 different athletic teams, and sponsor over 23 clubs. Approximately 800 students are enrolled at Owen HS. 39% of our staff hold advanced degrees, 37% are National Board Certified, and average 15 years of teaching experience.

Our goal is to create a safe, caring, rigorous, and engaging learning environment, in order to provide students with college and career readiness skills. Our mission is to assure that every student can graduate by modeling responsive communication, offering diverse and relevant learning opportunities, and relating content to community and global issues. We believe that by creating a positive, supportive school environment, students are empowered to think critically, and are prepared to succeed.
