College and Career Planning Day- Wednesday October 16, 2013
On October 16th, Rangeview 9th-11th grade students will be taking assessments from ACT that align with college entrance exams. We will not be following a late-start Wednesday schedule on October 16th; 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students should arrive at school at 7:25am ready for testing. Students who ride an APS school bus will catch the bus at the same time they do on regular school days. Seniors with Pickens Tech and CCA students will have those classes as usual this day. We encourage 11th graders who have Pickens or CCA classes in the morning to stay at Rangeview and test. There will be no ROTC bus to Gateway on this day. Testing for students will end by 11:30 at which time they will be allowed to purchase a sack lunch and be dismissed for the day; they must leave campus.
ACT programs and services are designed to help students explore options and prepare for their post secondary education and career plans. The tests, EXPLORE, PLAN and the Practice ACT, are assessments where students demonstrate knowledge in the areas of English, Mathematics, Reading and Science. The results allow students to determine their college readiness. The interest inventory and information components help students identify relevant career skills and options.
On this day 12th grade students will also have the opportunity to participate in the following:
- Practice ACT
- A College visit
- A Job shadowing experience
- Attend their CCA or Pickens class
ASVAB Testing will be available on October 16th during Rangeview’s Assessment and Career Day.
Any senior who is interested in enlisting in the military or just interested in this aptitude test, this is your opportunity. Testing will be in the media center at 7:45 a.m.
Sign up by completing the survey in Naviance. It can be found in the “About Me” tab, on the left hand side. The survey is titled “College and Career Day Options for Seniors 2013.
Sign up early…we are limited to 50 spots. All seniors need to complete the survey by October 4th

Families: As we approach the midway point of the first quarter and with Parent Teacher Conferences around the corner, this is a great time to set the tone for a great school year. Take the time to have conversations around the issues below at home and feel free to include RHS staff in the conversation as we all work towards a great 2013-2014 school year.
Excel by completing school tasks early
Grow your word power and avoid reckless reading
Earn a good B rather than a flawed A
Read before and after the lecture
Leverage free time to sprint ahead
Study with all of your senses, some of your classmates, and a few of your mentors.
Stop viewing educators as mean, abusive adults
Stop yielding to tech-driven distractions
Stop pursuing logical paths to wrong destinations
Honor loved ones with your academic success
Excerpted from Winning the Future Through Education, One Step at a Time by Samuel Betances
Any student who is interested in taking a class at CCA for the spring semester, needs to take the Accuplacer or provide ACT qualifying scores. The Accuplacer will be given only two more times before the deadline for submitting CCA packets.
