9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
(Enter campus off Deep Wood Drive by Krebsbach Pool and park in Lots C or D.)
Please join us to learn more about high school course planning and the AVID program. Details are below for specific times and descriptions of each presentation.
Description: AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is a college-readiness system designed to help students acquire the skills they will need to be successful in college. AVID candidates show potential to succeed in rigorous courses in high school and to be on track to attend college. Through the AVID program, students will learn skills and receive support to help them succeed in rigorous curriculum; complete a rigorous college preparatory path; enter mainstream activities of the school; increase their enrollment in four-year colleges; and become educated and responsible participants and leaders. Students are required to apply and interview for the AVID program, so we encourage you to come learn about this program early in the planning process.
Four Year Planning Presentation
Description: RRHS counseling staff will present detailed information on course requirements for graduation. We will explain the differences between courses, such as English I vs. Pre-AP English I, as well as selecting a program of study within the academies/ endorsement. We will help guide you with suggestions in creating a college ready high school plan. Following the presentation, counselors will be available to answer specific questions regarding four year plans and sequences of courses.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.
