High School Wellness Centers

Middle and High School Wellness Centers are a powerful investment for our schools and local communities. They empower our students to promote and manage their own social, emotional, and physical health while striving to support all areas of their lives that may impact their academic potential. Our Middle and High School Wellness Centers are student driven and they provide access to trusted adults, local community resources and services such as counseling, community engagement, empowerment workshops, case management and peer-to-peer support. Our Centers also support school staff by providing tools to further understand and motivate students to thrive in the classroom and beyond.

The Wellness Centers provide free, confidential services while connecting students, families and staff to vital community resources. The vision is to provide a range of resources to support students and families in meeting the challenges of adolescence through prevention, early-intervention and education, in a safe and convenient place - at school.
