School Based Health Center

A School-Based Health Center is located in your child's school. The health center is a place where your child can receive services regardless of immigration status, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation. 

  • Services are at no cost to you, even if you don't have insurance.
  • Your child can go to the health center even if they already have a doctor.
  • If you have insurance, visits to the health center will not count towards the number to see their doctor under your health plan. 

*Please schedule an appointment prior to speaking with a Health Clinic Representative*

In order for your child to receive these services, a parent/guardian must read, sign, and return the consent form directly to the School-Based Health Center. You can get a consent form by visiting the health center or getting one from your school's administration. Please stop by to speak to a School-Based Health Center representative for more information. We look forward to meeting you and providing care for your child.
