College Visits

Students will be given the opportunity to take a college visit during their membership in the Rogers Honors Academy.  (Depending on space, subsequent trips may be possible.)  Students are required to visit at least one top school – either on their own (documented college tour) or with the RHA. We have expanded on definition of top schools to include USN, CTCL and Princeton Review.  (Top schools are identified by US News and World Report, Top Colleges. We focus on the top 100 national universities: LINK and the top 50 liberal arts colleges: LINK

College Applications

During their Senior year, each RHA member must apply to at least two top schools in the US.

Community Service

Students should be involved in sustained, personally meaningful community service or work inside of or outside of the home. Community service may increase potential admission to top colleges and scholarship awards and it provides a learning opportunity beyond school.
