Montana Academy’s medical staff reviews each arriving student’s physical exam and medical-dental history so as to prescribe ongoing medications and, in consultation with parents, to organize routine medical-dental, vision or orthodontic consultations in Kalispell or Whitefish—for which our administrative team arranges transportation and supervision. Medications prescribed by consulting physicians are packaged and sent to Montana Academy each week and included in our routine medication services.
A registered nurse is routinely present on campus during the weekdays to examine and care for students with minor injuries or non-emergent infections, and to send serious problems to the Urgent Care clinic or Emergency Room at Kalispell Regional Medical Center. On evenings and weekends medical staff responds by telephone to staff questions about student health and refer students for immediate acute care in Kalispell.
When acute transport is required, our staff may summon Marion-based Search & Rescue paramedics, or KRMC sends its helicopter with paramedics who can arrive on campus within minutes.
Montana Academy’s campus and Sky House is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by competent, full-time staff, clinicians and academic faculty. Overnight, each dormitory or Sky House is staffed by awake overnight individuals who are available for emergent issues, or to offer support and encouragement when students are experiencing difficult times or just need a supportive listening ear.
