RHS Student Activities & Clubs

Rochester High School provides many different student activities in order to build a positive school culture and to help all our students feel a sense of belonging in the RHS community! For these reasons, we strive to offer events and activities that appeal to a broad range of student interests and that increase school spirit and student participation.

How to Join a Club

Register and Pay Online:  Membership is $30 per club. Register and pay online at tinyurl.com/rhsclubs

  • Fee Exceptions:  Groups exempt from the $30 club fee are our three service clubs: Green Club, Key Club, and Rotary Interact. These clubs may have other fees which will be listed on the online registration page, tinyurl.com/rhsclubs.
  • Additional Fees:  Some clubs may have other event-based costs and/or supply expenses that come up during the school year.
  • Fee Reduction:  A waived fee or a 75% reduction in the club fee is available to students who receive the same price reduction in free or reduced lunch. When paying for clubs online, students who receive free or reduced lunch may get an online discount code from the counseling office to adjust the club fee.

Class Pages

RHS has a Class Advisory Program where each class is sponsored by an RHS teacher and lead by a Student Advisory Congress. In that program, students plan events and activities to raise class spirit and participation, host service activities for providing community outreach opportunities, and hold fundraisers to help provide for the activities they do.
