What is RHS doing to help prepare students for future success?
College & Career Day
RHS hosted a PSAT/TSI/ASVAB college and career day in October. Students were able to take their college entrance or military aptitude tests in the morning. That afternoon, students were able to learn about CTE courses, visit with potential colleges and learn about advanced placement courses they can take while here at RHS. The CTE department hosted a career and technical education fair, where they showcased all of the different classes that RHS offers students to prepare for their future careers and CTE certification tests related to those classes. Advanced Placement teachers presented the different courses our campus has to offer and college recruiters were on campus to showcase undergraduate programs that students may be interested in.
The Go Center
The RHS Counselors office has opened up the Go Center for students to use as a resource. The Go Center is a location designed to create a college-going culture to help promote college awareness and reach out to students and parents to help provide them with tools and information needed to help college become a reality. The Go Center is primarily for seniors, but we are able to help all students. Parents are also welcome as we can help them learn about financial aid, how to help them prepare their student for college, and resources available for their student.
College Field Trips
Some of the programs at RHS are able to take students on field trips to tour college campus, talke with admissions offices and see college campuses first hand. The CCMR Ambassadors recently visited Texas A&M Commerce, while students in the AVID Program have been able to visit Texas Wesleyan University, Texas Woman's University and the University of North Texas.
These are just a few things RHS is doing to help prepare students for their futures! Visit our college, career, & military readiness page under the Counseling tab to learn more!
