Student Health Center

About our Student Health Center

The Health Center grew out of the need for school health services at Bruce-Guadalupe Community School (BGCS) in 1994 and is currently located in the lower level of UCC across the hallway from the fitness center. We are a safe and caring resource for students at Bruce Guadalupe Community School and UCC Acosta Middle School. At the Student Health Center, we assist with students' physical, mental and emotional health as well as medical needs that may arise throughout the school day. The staff includes a health room assistant and Carroll University registered nurses and occasionally, Carroll University nursing students, who will welcome our students. We work together as a team to provide quality care, promote health and control diseases. We help bridge the gap between student's health needs/ concerns and education. There is no direct cost to students/ families who use the Student Health Center.


The Student Health Center is supported and run by the Carroll University Nursing Program and students. Learn more about Carroll University community collaborative care at UCC!

Mission Statement

The Student Health Center serves two purposes: to provide a healthy and safe learning environment in our schools and help to maximize each childs' potential for growth and knowledge. We aim to return healthy students back into class for optimal learning opportunities and success.


What Does the Student Health Center Do?

We see students from both BGCS and Acosta Middle School each school day, with scheduled visits, walk-in visits, and tele-health appointments to address health needs.  We listen carefully to each student and create individualized care regarding their needs, concerns, illnesses, injuries and/ or health conditions. We coordinate healthcare with staff, parents, medical professionals and community health services to provide comprehensive services to our students.

  • Healthier students are ready to learn and display increased academic performance.
