School counselors will be sharing a wealth of information for our juniors as they prepare for senior year and graduation. Topics include GA Futures, the college search and application process, dual enrollment, scholarships and grants, military options, work opportunities, and important dates for rising seniors as the countdown to graduation begins! We’ll also have guest speakers provide information about senior portraits, caps and gowns, senior invites, and yearbooks.

Conferences being scheduled for 9th and 11th graders

Advisors of 9th and 11th grade students have begun scheduling conferences. Our goal is for each advisor to have at least one face-to-face meeting each year with each of his/her advisement students and parents.


Spring conferences target 9th and 11th grade advisement students; in the fall, we held 10th and 12th grade conferences.


If you have a child in 9th or 11th grade, please be on the look out for an invitation from your child's advisor to come in for this conference. If you don't get this invitation by mid-March, please let me or another administrator know so that we can work with your child's advisor to make this happen.

April is designated as the Month of the Military Child; a time to honor the sacrifices made by military families worldwide, with an emphasis on the experience of the dependent children of military members serving at home and overseas. At Richmond Hill High School, we value our military community, especially our military youth and all they endure. To show our support, we invite our students, parents/guardians, and staff members to honor our military youth for their resilience and sacrifice by purchasing a t-shirt for only $5 and participating in “Purple Up for Military Kids Day” on April 15th, 2020. A file with the t-shirt design is below and can be ordered here https://gwcpurpleup.itemorder.com/sale until March 4th. Anticipated delivery is the last week of March—we will be delivering shirts in advisement.
