Resources and updates for the 2023-2024 school year are available here


Cheshire Academy is dedicated to providing resources for student health and wellbeing. With the round-the-clock availability of nurses, counselors, and an off-site medical director, your child’s health and safety are assured.


The Richmond Health Center is a licensed infirmary open to students seven days a week and is staffed by a professional team of registered nurses, a pediatric nurse practitioner, two certified athletic trainers, and three school counselors.

A nurse and school counselor as well as an off-site medical director are on-call at all times. The health center coordinates appointments with medical specialists and provides transportation for our students. Several large hospitals are located nearby for students if they require emergency care or hospitalization. Our director of counseling coordinates any mental health services that are needed for our students.

For non-emergencies, anyone needing assistance should call or email questions or concerns to the Richmond Health Center directly, during our normal hours of operation. Contact the Administrator on Duty (203-627-0145) if you need to contact the on-call nurse or counselor with any urgent medical issue during evening and weekend hours when the health center is closed.


Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday - Sunday: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Our counseling and wellness center supports students from the day that they start at Cheshire Academy to the day that they graduate. 

Day and Boarding students can visit the counseling and wellness center for a variety of reasons. The Counseling and Wellness Center supports students through the daily stressors of being a student and an adolescent. These include but are not limited to, peer relationships, romantic relationships, roommate conflicts, and daily concerns. If students have a greater need for therapy beyond our capacity, they will be referred to a therapist within our community to better suit their needs.


You can set up an appointment in the resource portal, or walk in during open hours.
