REACH HIGHER ACADEMY

Our school counselors have teamed up with community partners from the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, California State University (ETS/Upward Bound), Allan Hancock College, and EAOP UC Santa Barbara to provide informational videos, publications, and documents to support seniors as they "Reach Higher" to complete their education past high school.

 

Reach Higher Academy is classroom based instruction designed to guide RHS seniors as they navigate through the college application process, apply for financial aid, explore scholarship opportunities, answer Personal Insight Questions, learn to utilize Xello for Seniors, and much more! 

Counselors and community partners will visit all Senior classrooms weekly during the month of October.
