RPA participates in statewide Oregon College Application Week Oct. 24-28
Redmond Proficiency Academy (RPA) joined more than 100 high schools and community-based organizations around the state in hosting Oregon College Application Week from Oct. 24-28. College Application Week (CAW) is part of Oregon Goes To College and is an affiliate program with the national American College Application Campaign.
The goal of this event is to assist all graduates of the RPA Class of 2023 as they apply to any post-high school educational option, including certificate programs, two-year college degree programs, and four-year universities.
During CAW, students at RPA participate in a variety of college admission activities and workshops including:
- Finding your college match
- Completing applications
- Writing essays
- Starting the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
- And, the scholarship search process
The RPA High School counseling team are holding sessions on campus, providing information, support, and guidance in all aspects of the college application process.
College admission visits will take place throughout the week from the following institutions, Willamette University, Western Oregon University, Southern Oregon University, Eastern Oregon University (virtual), Central Oregon Community College (COCC), and COCC Health Careers.
Leaders from Southern Oregon University will visit the RPA High School campus on Friday, Oct. 28, 2022 for SOU at RPA Day. The day of activities includes informational sessions, student performances, demonstrations, tours and more. The two institutions are working together with the goal of promoting college attendance and providing timely enrollment guidance. During the day, SOU will also offer on-the-spot acceptance to RPA students who apply and meet the qualifications – known as “Raider on the Spot.”
