Health Center

At the GFS Health Center, our goal is to keep our community healthy and safe. We work across campus with colleagues in our counseling, athletic and riding/polo, and Residential Life departments and others to ensure we can best serve our students. Parents and guardians are a vital piece of this partnership. We care deeply about our community and look forward to partnering with you to not only keep our campus healthy but to help our students thrive. 


As we work together to ensure the safety of our campus, students and families can do their part by adhering to the following guidelines:

One of the wonderful parts of being on the Garrison Forest campus is our boarding community. The Health Center partners closely with the Office of Residential Life to ensure we are providing excellent care for our residential life students. In addition to the required forms in Magnus Health, the Health Center meets with each family during move-in weekends in August to address any questions or concerns and to go over all protocols.  

Having the full picture of a student's health history and needs is vital in preparing to care for them, and this is particularly true for our boarding students. Conversations with the Health Center prior to your child's arrival to campus will help us become familiar with their specific needs or concerns, including setting up any necessary local appointments.
