Realms High School

College and Careers

RHS Students

Where am I going after high school and how do I get there? What am I interested in?

These are among the many questions that high school students have about their futures. At Realms High School, part of our Crew focus is College and Career. Our STC staff (School to College/Career) and crew teachers work together to implement relevant lessons to help our students be Future Ready. All students from 9th through 12th grades participate in meaningful activities that help prepare for their futures.

College and Career exploration and preparation is weaved through all 4 years at RHS.

  • 9th: complete an interest survey that leads to exploring their personal and career interests, as well as create their resume.
  • 10th: broaden their exploration by experiencing careers in small groups through field trips to career fairs, local business tours and business presentations.
  • 11th: opt to do a deep dive into a career interest through a 6-12 hour job shadow, research and develop their post graduation plans that include their education application lists.
  • 12th: opt to do an internship, apply to their schools of choice, financial aid and scholarships.

Post Graduation Plan

RHS Career Center

At RHS, 100% of our seniors apply to a college, trade school or other post high school education. In preparation, we provide each junior and senior with our RHS Post Graduation Planning Handbook. This outlines many common questions, offers tips, calendars, checklists, organizing charts, schedules, links and specific information on most post graduation options and financial aid opportunities. We want all our students to succeed. This handbook is a tool for students to use to organize and plan for a successful transition from high school to wherever their plans take them.
