● State law requires that footwear be worn at all times.
● Students must wear an appropriate shirt at all times. Including during sports practices. Examples of inappropriate shirts are: sleeveless undershirts, tube-tops, see-through tops, backless tops, strapless tops, or low-cut or stomach baring (midriff) tops, and muscle shirts.
● Clothing that advertises or promotes alcohol, drugs, violence, or other inappropriate activity is not acceptable.
● Undergarments of any kind should not be visible.

Violation of the Student Dress Code will result in requiring the student to change to more appropriate attire (physical education clothes or school spiritwear). Additional school consequences will be given to repeat offenders.

FOOD DELIVERIES FOR STUDENTS
Attention Parents and Students:
Please be aware that food deliveries from outside vendors such as Door Dash, Uber Eats and Grub Hub will not be allowed to deliver food to the Royal campus unless it is during our scheduled lunch time. Students may not leave class to receive food deliveries. Food may only be delivered to the front office and not delivered over the fence or through the gates. The office will not accept fountain drinks or any drink that does not have a sealed lid. The student's name must be clearly labeled on the food item. Failure to follow these guidelines will jeopardize any food delivery services at Royal High School.
ST. ROSE OF LIMA PARKING LOT
Attention Parents and Students: Please do not use the St. Rose of Lima Parking Lot to drop off and pick up your students. They have asked us to relay that their parking lot has had very heavy traffic and their parents can't get in to pick up their students from their own school. You can meet your students off of Arcane in the back of the school, on Hudspeth to the East of the school, or in either parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
THIS WEEK: Centre College
Click here for Admissions Info
Click here for Tuition & Financial Aid Info
Acceptance Rate: 76%
DETAILS: Centre College, the only independent school in Kentucky with a Phi Beta Kappa chapter, has produced two-thirds of the state’s Rhodes scholars over the last 40 years. Centre’s small size offers an intimate classroom environment. And its liberal arts focus means that despite Centre’s southern location, students are progressive, intellectual, and perhaps more well-rounded than their peers at neighboring schools. “We have an amazing balance of ‘Northern academics’ paired with ‘Southern hospitalities,’” says a sophomore.
General education requirements include basic skills in expository writing, math, and foreign language and two courses in four contexts—aesthetic, social, scientific, and fundamental questions. Students must also take a computer seminar. Required first-year seminar courses are offered during the three-week January “CentreTerm.” Capped at 15 students each, they offer a chance to explore off-beat topics such as cloning, baseball in American politics, and coffee-shop culture.
The Centre Commitment guarantees students an internship or research experience, study abroad, and a degree in four years. Eighty-five percent of any given class takes advantage of Centre’s extensive study abroad programs. Centre runs regular semester-long programs for students in all majors in China, England, France, Japan, Mexico, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Spain, in addition to several others offered during the January term. Study-away semesters in Washington, D.C., and Chicago combine coursework with internships. Approximately 82 percent of students engage in an internship or perform collaborative research with faculty.
CC Student Perspective: “Our small class sizes allow professors to really feed off of the energy and needs of the class and make it a more personal environment.”
