School Based Health Center

Once signed up, students can receive services.

  • All New London Public Schools (except Harbor School) have a School-Based Health Center on site.  The school district’s community partner, Child & Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut, operates the five centers. 
  • A School-Based Health center is different from the school nurse’s office and your community primary care doctor, but works in collaboration with them.  
  • Students must be signed up for School-Based Health Center services by a parent/legal guardian.  
  • Health insurance is billed for services provided, but there is no cost to the family (no co-pays, deductible costs, or out-of-pocket expenses).  
  • Each School-Based Health Center has a Nurse Practitioner (APRN) and a Masters level Mental Health Clinician.  
  • You can find registration forms at the school-based health center, in your school nurse’s office, or at the Welcome Center. 
  • Or, you can register online:
  • English online registration form: https://www.childandfamilyagency.org/forms/forms-school-based/forms-sbhc-registration/
