Episcopal seeks to create opportunities for students and faculty to thrive on campus through an intentional and inspirational balance of ambitious pursuits and healthy lifestyles.
Building the Space: The School is constructing the deButts Health and Wellness Center to replace McAllister Health Center, originally built in 1934 to serve a significantly smaller, all-male student body. Replacing it has long been identified as a need. Features will include comprehensive treatment and clinical work areas, a classroom for health and wellness courses; a separate area and offices dedicated to the school counselors; a meditation room; and separate waiting areas for sick and "well" patients. Construction began in June 2021 and is scheduled to be completed in time for use during the 2022-23 school year.
Impactful Programming: In addition to fulfilling essential medical needs, the new facility will serve as a hub for the School’s Health and Wellness programming, as well as expanded counseling services. Episcopal is a pioneer in wellness initiatives that are relevant to the needs of today’s adolescents. Areas that are addressed include emotional and physical well-being, health risks associated with drugs and alcohol, stress-management, and sleep hygiene.
