  • Have your current 6th – 11th grade student shadow on select days by contacting our office at admission@rbcs.org. Select invitations from Rocky Administrators may be offered to students outside of these parameters.
  • If you will be applying for in house RBCS Tuition Assistance, please do so at the same time as applying for admission to the school.
  • On shadow days, your prospective or accepted student can take classes for themselves, meet teachers and staff, and make some social connections with other students in their current grade.
