MVLA’s Wellness Centers are a place for students to take a wellness break, learn and practice self-care strategies, participate in workshops that promote well-being, and receive mental health resources.  

Students may access the Wellness Centers throughout the school day with permission from staff. The center is supported by a Wellness Center Coordinator dedicated to improving the health, well-being, and academic success of all students. 

Features of the Wellness Center include calming spaces, self-led relaxation and self-care activities, wellness workshops, and community-based resources.

Our Wellness Centers are open everyday from 8:30 AM until the End of the School Day, and are closed during brunch and lunch.
