Health Services

Christ Church Episcopal School provides comprehensive care to all students and staff. Two full-time registered nurses provide health assessments, emergency care for illness and injury, manage the care of students with chronic illnesses, and administer medications. CCES also has in place a standing Medical Advisory Panel to help guide us in ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. As they did throughout the pandemic, they serve in an advisory capacity to help our nurses and administrators make timely and informed decisions about any number of health-related issues.

Counseling Program

In partnership with students, teachers, parents, and a caring community, our school counselors help nurture students’ intellectual development, personal integrity, and sense of community and self-worth, while promoting an understanding and appreciation of the diversity of persons. Through individual meetings, small groups, and training workshops, the school counselor serves as a part of the CCES support system for students and parents.
