Career Cruising  is  an online tool for all things college and career.  It allows students to do inventories, search careers that fit their personality and interests, research careers and colleges, find scholarship information, prepare for the ACT, and more—all within their own account!  We also use Career Cruising to send transcripts electronically. Students become familiar with Career Cruising through Lobo 101 during freshmen year.

The counselors at RMHS have also created several guides to assist you with with the process.  Use our College Planning Guide, Senior Time Line, College Planning Checklist and Career Planning Guide to help you explore, prepare, select, decide and fund your college and career options.

PSD Channel 10 has prepared some video presentations to help with post-secondary readiness.
Topics include Senior Year Transition, Financial Aid, College Bound: Searching and College Bound: Applying. 
View the videos for information from high school counselors.

Ms. Fassnacht, College and Career Counselor, is available to help you through the process.

It is important to meet with your counselor at least once a year throughout your high school career to discuss your plans after high school and to be certain you are meeting graduation requirements.
