Celebrate Your Healthy School 

Healthy Schools Certification gives your school the tools to promote and enhance the health and well-being of students, school staff, and the broader school community. Now is the time to prioritize health, collaboration, and connection in your school community!  

Healthy Schools Certification is guided by the following goals: 

  • To support schools that want to enhance the health and well-being of their students and staff 
  • To increase student engagement and leadership opportunities to support health and well-being at school  
  • To increase adult engagement in prioritizing health and well-being at school  
  • To strengthen community engagement and partnerships  

To learn more about the Healthy Schools Certification Program, please review the Healthy Schools Certification Guidebook 2023-2024.

Congratulations to all the 2023-2024 Healthy Schools Certification certified schools.

How Does My School Register and Get Certified? 

By completing the 4-Step Healthy Schools Process throughout the school year, registered schools earn points and can apply to be certified as a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Healthy School. Certification is flexible and adaptable for all school communities; it’s based on a school’s ability to follow and complete the process and not on the type or number of activities completed.

Please note: the 2023/2024 Healthy Schools Schools Certification Program closed on May 3, 2024. Registration for 2024/2025 will open in Fall 2024.

Here’s what you need to register.

Registration gives you access to: 

  • activity ideas that connect to different health topics (including choice boards to support student engagement); 
  • support, training, and consultation services from the Healthy Schools Certification Team; 
  • the opportunity to make your school a happier, healthier place!
