Incoming Freshman Registration for 2016-2017

RHS Mascot.jpg

We are excited to welcome the class of 2020!

 

In March, RHS counselors presented information to 8th graders and their parents about graduation requirements, college entrance requirements, and our Pathways.  Students completed registration forms and counselors have met with students at their middle schools to assist with registering via Aeries.  At this time, change requests can be made by emailing the student's counselor.

 

REGISTRATION RESOURCES

Helpful resources, such as the course catalog, can be found here.

Registration for Continuing Students

Students have selected courses for next year via Aeries.  Counselors will meet briefly with each student between April 5 and  April 15 to review their course requests for next year and make adjustments. Requests for course changes after this time period should be emailed to the student's counselor.  Specific teacher requests will not be accepted.

 

Resources that may be helpful in selecting courses, such as the Course Catalog, are available here.

Junior and Senior SAT/ACT Registration

College Bound.jpg
College bound seniors should sign up to take the SAT or ACT (or both) by December. Students may take these tests more than once and most colleges will use the highest score for admissions purposes. Links to the websites for both tests are listed below. If you sign up now, you are more likely to be assigned to the local testing site you prefer. The SAT is given at RHS in May.  Juniors are encouraged to take the SAT in April, May or June.

Letters of Recommendation for College Applications or Scholarships

Are you a senior applying to a private school or scholarship program that requires a letter of recommendation from a teacher or counselor?  If so, be sure to allow plenty of time for the person to do a great job. Two weeks are recommended but three weeks are even better!  Use the link on Family Connections to make your request and fill out your "brag sheet". Don't forget to check due dates and plan accordingly, taking into account vacations when staff may not be available.
