The Freshman Field Study Minimester is planned for the week of May 15-19, 2022 (may be subject to change). This trip has always been a treasured, required activity for all students at Richmond Community High School. All ninth-grade students will depart from our school for a week of camping, history, and ecological studies on the Chesapeake Bay. Students will experience valuable hands-on learning, make new friendships, practice leadership, and build independence and confidence.
Beneath the calendar below, you'll find important documents pertaining to the Freshman Minimester.
This year, we are excited to take our sophomores to Atlanta, Georgia, to explore civil and human rights. The city of Atlanta is rich with cultural and historical attractions that will lend to the development of our mission. Atlanta played an essential role in the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement. While there, our sophomore students will examine the Holocaust and other examples of genocide in the twentieth century and synthesize evidence from artifacts and primary and secondary sources to obtain information about events and life in world history.
Attractions like the Michael C. Carlos Museum, Center for Civil and Human Rights, Apex Museum, Museum of History and Holocaust Education, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site will all serve to inform our students of the rich history of the state of Georgia and how that history has impacted our lives today.
In addition to the cultural aspects of the trip, students will tour the campuses of several area colleges. This will allow them to speak directly with admission officers and get a feel for campus life.
