Clubs at RCHS are open to all students and are driven by student interests. A student-initiated club can be started by completing a Club Charter form and being sponsored by a faculty member. This form must be completed annually to maintain the continuation of a club. You can find the Club Charter form on the Activities Info page.
The following are the 2018-2019 Clubs and Activities. This list will be updated as the school year progresses. If you are interested in joining a club or activity, ask the club Sponsor for more information.
