There are 33 school-based health centers (SBHCs) in Chicago that provide services that include but are not limited to: immunizations, physical exams, sports physicals, behavioral healthcare, chronic condition management, sexual and reproductive health care, and acute care.
School-based health centers provide comprehensive, developmentally-appropriate, non-judgmental, confidential care. Students can access health services at school-based health centers at no out-of-pocket cost. Most school-based health services require parent or caregiver consent. Some SBHCs are available to the community and to neighboring schools. Please call ahead before making an appointment. View the list of the 33 CPS School-Based Health Centers.
