Health & Wellness

Health Services Mission

The primary purpose of Health Services is to encourage positive health practices among all students at the Academy. Each student is responsible for his/her own health practices and may wish to consider the following in making choices about his/her lifestyle:

  • Healthy decision-making
  • Concepts of preventative medicine
  • Coping with stress and distress
  • Principles of nutrition and weight control
  • The effects of smoking, drugs, and alcohol
  • The importance of sleep
  • The value of personal hygiene
  • Health Services is available to provide the necessary information for students to make responsible decisions about their own lifestyles and health practices. Recognizing that each individual has unique needs and goals, Health Services strives to maintain and/or restore the physical and mental health of each student so that he/she may obtain an optimal level of wellness.

    In addition, Health Services encourages communication between students and parents and works to facilitate better understanding so that the needs and goals of both parties may be satisfied.

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    The health office receives a limited number of influenza vaccines every year. If you would like your child to receive the inactive influenza vaccine this year please read the VIS (Vaccine Information Statements), complete the screening and consent form and send back to me via email or fax.
