Asheville Academy Black Mountain Faculty

Mark Claibourne
Academic Director

From the moment students walk into Mark’s classroom, they cannot help be drawn in by his passion for history from a historian’s perspective.  Mark believes that critical examination of historic events is the key to creating invested, responsible, discerning citizens. By examining primary sources, assessing bias, and engaging in debate, students learn what it means to be a committed and informed member of society.
