CLUBS

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.
