Activities at RCS High
RCS offers students a diverse and engaging realm of activities outside of the classroom. From planning and participating in Student Council retreats to building world-renowned robots, RCS has it all.
RCS Student Council is a student government class that provides leadership training and leadership experience in all areas. The council, made up of an array of different types of personalities and age groups, works together to create a better community throughout Resurrection Christian School and to provide school wide service projects, dances, and opportunities to allow every high school student to maintain the ideal high school experience.The council persistently works to create a better school community and environment.
A few events that Student Council annually sponsors are the CCR (Crooked Creek Ranch) Retreat, Homecoming, Sadie Hawkins, Mr. RCS, and community service opportunities. Student Council is available for all grades, 9 through 12, and encourages each member to investigate how they may become a better servant leader in every area of their lives.
National Honor Society
National Honor Society is open to juniors and first semester seniors. Applicants must have a 3.75 GPA to apply for membership and must maintain it throughout their time at RCS. Students are nominated for membership by the NHS sponsor. The NHS advisory board is made up of five teachers who vote on the applicants based on scholarship, leadership, character, and service. Members participate in ten service projects and have bi-monthly meetings. Transfer students may be nominated for NHS after completing one semester at RCS.
Speech and Debate
The RCS Speech and Debate team began in the fall of 2012 with 20 students and has grown to over 80 students. Consistently ranking in the top 10 in the state of Colorado, in all classifications, and in the top 250 in the nation, Resurrection Christian School Speech and Debate team continues to thrive and impact the community around them.
