Health Center

 

The Avon Old Farms Health Center provides comprehensive health care to the students of Avon Old Farms School. Our goal is to keep our students mentally and physically healthy through education and preventative care.

A physician (three days a week), nurse practitioner, five registered nurses, a retained full time LSCW (licensed therapist), and a retained part time psychiatrist are available. Medication is dispensed to the students and first-aid care is available during posted hours. In case of an emergency during non-staffed hours, a nurse is available on call. The Health Center contains four beds if students need to spend an extended amount of time due to sickness or injury.

 

The Health Center works in partnership with the Connecticut Childrens Medical Center in Hartford Connecticut. We are a support service to our students and can make referrals to our medical doctor, clinical psychologist, or physical therapist.

Wellness Instructor at Avon Old Farms Private Boys High School, Connecticut

Avon Old Farms has partnered with Jeffrey A. Asmar, LCSW to provide our students with a safe place for their emotional well-being."I work to respond to and support students' ongoing individual development." Jeff takes an ongoing interest in the developing the identity of young men. He assists adolescents in working through normative developmental hurdles, fostering adaptive solutions, and developing a strong sense of self. In addition, Jeffrey works very closely with parents. He strives to join with caregivers to understand what children are thinking, feeling, and communicating.
