In 2001, Codman Academy Charter Public School opened its doors on the site of Codman Square Health Center, becoming the first co-located health and education partnership in the country.

Since that time, Codman Academy and Codman Square Health Center have learned much about what it takes to make such a partnership work. There have been innumerable successes, but also some challenges.

We want others to learn from our experience. For that reason, we drafted a Blueprint for Health and Education Partnerships to guide other organizations seeking to explore this unique model.

We offer here both the full Blueprint and its Executive Summary as a separate PDF.


Codman² would like to thank Startup:Education and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts for their support in the development of the Blueprint and Executive Summary.
