Teen Health Clinic
All Kent Phoenix Academy students can get free health care and counseling at the Kent Phoenix Academy Teen Health Center during the school year. The Teen Health Center is located in Room 309. To get started, a parent or guardian needs to fill out and sign the registration forms. Your student can bring the completed paperwork to the Teen Health Center.
The Teen Health Center follows all Washington State laws about parental consent. Students must be registered for the health center, including a parent or guardian signature, to be seen for a medical visit. Once your student has registered, there is no need to sign up again. Like all doctor’s offices in Washington, teens of any age can seek confidential reproductive health care services. Confidential mental health services are available for teens age 13 and over. The staff of the teen health center is committed to promoting family communication about health issues.
Having health care services on campus is a great way to help our students healthy and help them succeed in school. We hope you’ll take advantage of these important services! If you have any questions, please contact the Teen Health Center at (253) 373-6940.
