College Counseling

Seminars and Workshops

At RPCS we are fortunate to have devoted academic time to meet with juniors and seniors as a group. Students meet with the college counselors to discuss topics relevant to their college process. This time together also provides the girls an opportunity to ask questions and support each other in their individual paths to college.
