Medical care, counseling, and wellness offerings are available to all Lawrenceville students. We take a holistic approach to student wellbeing, supporting the health of every student and, in turn, of our community.
Health and wellness are more than services; they are a foundation for life skills that will benefit Lawrentians into adulthood: they will be confident and capable in speaking openly and appropriately about physical and mental health concerns; they will understand how to manage their lifestyle choices, including seeking help when they need it.
Building a Healthy Lifestyle
Healthy habits are encouraged in daily activities at Lawrenceville: practicing good sleep hygiene to get the proper quality and quantity of sleep; eating balanced meals in our dining halls; engaging in athletics or active co-curriculars; practicing mindfulness and respectful discussion; connecting with classmates, teammates, teachers, and friends. By fostering positive relationships with peers and trusted adults, students are better equipped to navigate their own challenges in a healthy and productive way.
The School’s Personal Development seminar and its companion programming point directly to the development of healthy habits, social and physical awareness, and the ability to speak openly and appropriately about personal and community health issues. Formally held as a class for Second- and Third-Form students, the seminar covers topics like time management, relationships, communication, decision making, and handling change.
Accessing Support from Professionals
Included with tuition, Lawrenceville students are cared for by a team of wellness leaders. The Al-Rashid Health and Wellness Center is staffed 24/7 by more than 30 medical professionals, including a medical doctor, nurses, medical assistants, psychologists, athletic trainers, and administrators who adeptly engage and respond to student needs.
