School Based Health

Our School-Based Health Centers services are available to students, their siblings, as well as faculty and staff. We have locations in four schools and linked services for neighboring schools for when care is needed during school hours. We provide medical, behavioral health, and nutrition services at our various school health centers.

The North Carolina General Statue 90-21.5 authorizes minors to give effective consent to a North Carolina licensed medical provider for medical health services for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of:

  1. Venereal diseases and other diseases reportable under G.S. 130A-135
  2. Pregnancy
  3. Abuse of controlled substances or alcohol

Medical providers are not required to notify guardians about such services unless the situation, in the opinion of the medical provider, indicates that notification is essential to the life or health of the minor.
