PURCHASE ASB STICKERS

ASB Stickers give students free entrance to all home games and performances. The sticker also provides discounts on things like dance tickets and school gear at the ASB office. More than anything, the $65 you spend on this sticker is a key fund generator for Royal student programs. All money from these sales are filtered back to your students in the form of school events, spirit initiatives, and diverse school-impacting projects. While the sticker is $65 it's value to what your student can take part in (in terms of admission prices and discounts alone) already totals $400 and will increase in value as new events and projects are created by our ASB leaders and staff. You can purchase this on the web store or in person at the ASB office. For questions please contact Ashley Rotellini. We thank you for taking the opportunity to support Royal and enriching your students' experiences!

COLLEGE OF THE WEEK

Each week, Royal will provide insight into unique college options for students & families. Our source is the Fiske Guide to Colleges 2019 - an annual comprehensive catalog of diverse universities here in California and nationwide.


THIS WEEK: LEWIS & CLARK COLLEGE

Click here for Admissions Info

Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info

Enrollment: 2,078

Acceptance Rate: 63%


DETAILS: The 19th-century explorers Lewis and Clark struck out from Middle America to find where the trail ended, and their travels took them to Portland, a lush, green paradise by the Willamette River. The college that bears the explorers’ names encourages students to explore too. Since 1962, almost 12,000 students and 300 faculty members have participated in programs in 68 countries. Each year, Lewis & Clark offers more than 30 programs in different parts of the world. Without a doubt, Lewis & Clark students receive, as one junior puts it, “an excellent, hands-on education.”


Lest students become too enchanted overseas, Lewis & Clark lures them back with a gorgeous campus perched atop fir-covered bluffs overlooking the river. The campus is an old estate, complete with elaborate gardens, fountains, and pools, where cement is almost nonexistent and the roads are paved with cobblestones.


Lewis & Clark offers a Portfolio Path to admission, where students present a package representing their talents and interests. PP students supply two teacher recommendations and two graded samples of high school work: one quantitative sample and one analytical writing sample. The key to a good portfolio is a “well-rounded approach,” administrators say. “The more creative, the better, but be sure it’s not solely artwork or writing samples.”


L&C Student Perspective: “Most of the classes are small and discussion-based, so there is a lot of time for personal questions.”
