Taking the SAT: Better Late Than Never

The days are long, but the years are short…

Seniors: there seems to be a misconception that after winter break, you have no more opportunities to take the SAT for college.  This is not true.  In fact, for schools with later deadlines, rolling admission, or other nontraditional admittance processes, the January 24th SAT is a great opportunity to improve your scores.  Note that we do not offer the SAT at Caroline on this date, however, what’s a few miles drive to another school when it could mean your acceptance into college?  Make sure that you visit www.collegeboard.org to sign up before the December 29th deadline.

National Rural Electric Washington Youth Tour

Each year since 1964, the National Rural Electric Washington Youth Tour has been a means for high school students to visit Washington, D.C., interact with their peers from around the country, learn about Cooperatives, and meet their Congressmen and Senators.  This year, Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) will select 7 juniors for the FREE June 14 – 18 trip.  In addition, REC will award a $500 scholarship to one student based upon their participation during Youth Tour.

Youth Tour participants are selected based upon their scholastic studies, recommendations, extracurricular activities and interest in government, rural affairs and cooperatives.  Completed applications must be received by REC no later than March 9, 2015.  All applicants must meet the following criteria.

  1. Students should be enrolled in the 11th grade during the 2014 – 2015 school year
  2. Applicants whose parents or guardians are members of REC will be given primary consideration for selection
