The Freshman Minimester is a treasured tradition and a required activity for all students at RCHS. All ninth-grade students departedfrom our school for a week of camping, history, and ecological studies on the Chesapeake Bay. Students experienced valuable hands-on learning, made new friendships, practiced leadership, and built independence and confidence.

In the spring of 2023, we were 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 contributed to the development of our school's mission. Atlanta played an essential role in the Civil War and the Civil Rights movement. While there, our sophomore students examined the Holocaust and other examples of genocide in the twentieth century and synthesized 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 all served 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 toured the campuses of several area colleges. This allowed them to speak directly with admission officers and get a feel for campus life.
