Welcome to your School Based Health Center/SBHC (Wellness Center) at St. Georges Technical High School. This center has been established specifically to make quality health care available to teens. The SBHC is operated by a partnership that includes Christiana Care, New Castle County VoTech School District, and the Delaware Division of Public Health.

The staff consists of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Coordinator, Nurse Practitioner, a Registered Dietitian, and an Administrative Assistant. The Wellness Center’’s staff works closely with your health care provider, parents and school nurses to create a health care resource. If you do not have a health care provider, the Wellness Center can help you locate one.

Our facility is available to all 9th to 12th graders who attend St. Georges Technical High School.

Our goals are to:

  • Promote on-going comprehensive health care to students
  • Detect signs of emotional stress and psychological problems experienced by our students and provide or refer for mental health services
  • Improve students’ knowledge of preventive health care and assist them in developing healthy behaviors.

To allow your child to use the Wellness Center, you will need to complete and return the Consent and Registration form. You can print and fill out the Up-dated Wellness Registration or the student can pick one up in the Wellness Center or the Nurse’s office.

We cannot provide services to your child unless your signature is on the form. You select the services you want for your child and if you do not want a particular service you may refuse it on the consent form. This action allows your child to still benefit from the remainder of services offered.
