College Knowledge Week

During the month of October, RHHS has a focus on post-secondary options for students. We host our College and Career Fair, hold a resume writing workshop, and a financial aid workshop. Additionally, faculty and staff make a concerted effort to promote college, technical schools, military and career options for students following high school.


This coming week, faculty and staff are encouraged to wear college and post-secondary gear to help spark conversations with students about next steps after high school. Many teachers actively plan for this week and intentionally share great information and resources.

Students are encouraged to ask questions and let us help them get answers.


We love our College Knowledge week and can't wait to see all of the tech school/military/college spirit shirts!
