Codman Square Health Center
Codman Academy is the only high school in the U.S. located within a community health center. Our partnership with the Codman Square Health Center, which dates from the school's establishment, allows both organizations to work together to improve the health and well being of the community. In addition to sharing space with medical staff, Codman students complete one to two years of required multi-week health career internships in the 11th and 12th grade. The school also partners with the health center to annually measure students' baseline health data (height/weight, blood pressure, and BMI). Our partnership is guided by the vision that every student will graduate with the skills and knowledge to live a healthy life.
The Codman Square Health Center opened in 1979. Today more than 250 employees record over 120,000 client contacts annually. The Codman Square Health Center has become an innovative leader in regional, national and international efforts to improve community health.
