Financial Aid

A Financial Aid Workshop is hosted every year in the library at RGHS. All students in grades 11 and 12 are invited to attend with their parents/guardians. A representative from PHEAA will present information on various types of financial aid and discuss the process for applying for aid to attend college, business or technical school after graduation.

This year’s financial aid night is:

December 6, 2016 at 6:00 pm

NCAA Eligibility

 There are two levels of athletics that involve the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
  • Division I & II – “Certification Account,” requires certification by the NCAA to compete at collegiate level
  • Division III – “Profile Page”, can be converted into a Certification Account if a student decides later on to pursue a Division I or II path.

If a student is pursuing athletics at a Division I or Division II college, he/she must be certified by the NCAA. Online registration is required and it is highly recommended to do this at the beginning of their junior year in high school. Registration is NOT optional and students MUST be approved by the NCAA prior to participation in their collegiate level sport. There is an $80.00 fee to register.

To register: visit and reference the Website Registration Checklist below.

There are several stages through the process where your Guidance Counselor will be prompted via email to upload transcripts for educational verification. Please stay in contact with Mrs. Beightol throughout this process to ensure that all phases are complete. And don’t hesitate to ask any questions along the way.
