In the Health and Counseling Center, we try to make connections with students, empowering them to make good decisions and helping them shape a safe, healthy high school experience. We provide educational services, keeping students informed about the numerous options we offer to help them. We provide support and intervention when students are in need. We try to offer a comfortable, approachable space where students can find warm, empathetic and effective counselors. The Health Center is committed to helping students develop their intellectual, social and emotional potential.
The Health & Counseling Center is located at 348 Centre Street, next to the Goodwin & Hathaway dormitories.
We are staffed by nurses Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until midnight, and weekends 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. until midnight. During the hours the Health Center is not staffed, we do have a nurse available on call. School physicians are available to boarding students for consultation and treatment. Appointments are arranged by the Health Center staff. Services of physicians are not covered by the student’s health fee and are provided on a fee-for-service basis and will be billed to the student’s current health insurance on file with the Health Center.
Licensed health professionals staff the counseling center. They are at Milton for students who are in need of help with personal problems or obstacles to personal and academic growth. We also work with outside health professionals on a consulting basis. Students may contact counselors any time by emailing, calling or by coming by the Counseling Center. Counselors are available for appointments Monday through Friday, and one counselor is always on-call.
We offer personal counseling to students on a confidential basis. Information students share with the counselors is private and is treated confidentially within the limits of safety and the law.
Each counselor works with a dorm, to provide extra support during the school year.
