School-Based Health Center

Providing in-school medical and dental care for students in Rockbridge County.

Rockbridge Area Health Center (RAHC) in coordination with Rockbridge County Public Schools is bringing healthcare to students.  Our clinics are at Maury River Middle School and Rockbridge County High School and are operated by our licensed professional staff who can examine, diagnose, and treat various health issues. Our intent is not to replace your current primary care provider but to address health needs in a convenient location for students and families. Our staff will work in collaboration with the school staff to offer much-needed services that will help keep children and staff members healthy in school and avoid disrupting parent’s workday.

In addition to dental services, we will also be providing medical and behavioral health services.

The dental services will be provided as they have been for the previous 12 years at your child’s school by licensed dental hygienists and dentists.

Medical and behavioral health will be available at Maury River Middle School and Rockbridge County High School, but all RCPS students are eligible to receive services.

For your child to receive these services, parents/guardians must provide ALL of THE INFORMATION requested on the registration form.

RAHC will encourage every student to involve their parents/legal guardians in health care decisions, however, under Virgina law, children 14 and older can request mental health, substance use, and sexual health treatment without the consent of an adult.

By law we are required to restrict full access to medical records, including the patient portal, to parents when the patient turns 13, and restrict full access when the patient turns 18. Patients may authorize full medical record access to parents, by signing an authorization.

This program is made possible by a generous grant from the Virginia Health Care Foundation.

This is a test of the website popup tool to let our patients know if there are delays or closures due to inclement weather.
