Health Care

The Academy maintains a nursing office with a nurse on-call after hours.

Boarding students who do not feel well are screened and treated by a school nurse. Should additional care be required, a doctor's office is located in Houghton. The closest hospital is about 35 minutes away and is used for acute medical needs.

Boarding students are required to have health insurance. A physical examination is required prior to enrollment and must be administered by a physician. Immunizations must be reported and students must meet New York State immunization standards.
