Philosophy

At RCHS we believe that our activity programs contribute to the development of leadership, talent and creativity of our students through our mission statement; to empower, explore, encourage and excel in education. Rock Canyon High School works to ensure that programs are valuable and fair to all participants. For more information on Clubs and Activities at Rock Canyon, please click on the Activities Info link in the left column of this page and contact the listed sponsor with any questions.

Since clubs and sponsors may vary from year to year, ALL CLUBS must complete a Club Charter Form for the current school year in order to be active. New offerings for clubs are driven by student interest and approval from the Activities Director; continuation of clubs is dependent on students finding faculty sponsorship.
