Health and Wellness

At CVA, the health and safety of our student-athletes is our top priority. Our comprehensive approach includes a health center on site in the dormitory staffed with a full-time RN; the athletic training office on campus with a full-time certified and licensed Athletic Trainer; Human Performance Director; CPR/First Aid and suicide prevention trained staff, teachers and coaches; and a certified counselor on retainer. We employ a team approach working closely with multiple local health care providers from a variety of disciplines to ensure thorough care with the best possible results. This currently includes chiropractic care, and massage therapy services that come to campus, a school physician on consultation and a team orthopedic doctor.
