Welcome to Student Services at Randolph Union Middle and High School.
School Choice Information:
As in previous years, our school board has chosen to participate in the Winooski Valley Regional Public
School Choice Collaborative for the 2020-21 school year. Through this program and the state school choice program, students may apply to go to any public high school in Vermont at no cost.
For more information about the program, or to download an application, click on the appropriate link in the "documents" box to the left.
Here are just a few upcoming activities that students and families might find of interest:
PSAT Score Meetings
Ongoing - Student Services Office
RUHS 10th and 11th Graders
PSAT scores are available for students to review with their school counselor. Counselors are encouraging students to schedule an appointment, either through email or by signing up on the calendars located on the bulletin board outside of the student services office.
VSAC Scholarship Booklet
Deadline: February 12th - VSAC Website
Vermont Student Assistance Corporation offers a variety of scholarships worth thousands of dollars for Vermont seniors. The booklet is available in student services. If students need help completing the process, Kara and Bev are ready and willing to help seniors. This process requires essays and letters of recommendations. Therefore, it is extremely important to start the process now.
Winooski Valley Regional Public School Choice Collaborative
Deadline: February 21st - RUHS 8th-11th Graders
Parents/guardians with their student can fill out the Winooski Valley Regional Public School Choice Collaborative paperwork. This paperwork allows students to be part of the lottery that allows for the potential for them to attend a different public high school. The application needs to be returned to Karen Johnson in RUHS Student Services by February 21st. Families will be informed of the outcome of the lottery by April 1st, 2020 and then need to confirm by April 15th.
College and Career Pathways Day
Thursday, March 19th. - St. Michael’s College
RUHS 10th and 11th Graders
As part of our post-secondary exploration opportunities, student services is taking one bus to the College and Career Pathways Day, which is being sponsored by VSAC. The day will allow students to choose three different workshops, tour the St. Mike’s campus, and eat lunch in the dining hall. Students interested in attending this field trip should sign up in student services.
Standardized Testing Option: ACT
Tuesday, March 24th, 8-12:00 pm - Middle School Gym
As part of the effort of student services to expose RUHS students to post-secondary options, RUHS is offering an in-school test date and time for the ACT. The ACT is a college entrance exam that typically costs a student $46 to take on a Saturday at other area schools. All juniors will be taking this exam unless their family and school support team feels that they should be excused. All American universities and colleges accept this standardized test as a college entrance exam. For more information about the ACT, please check out www.act.org. Juniors will be taking this test unless parents, school counselors and advisors/RTCC program directors sign off on an opt-out form.
