High School Information
Welcome to the 2017/18 River Oaks Academy school year!
We will be offering a variety of counseling services for our high school students again
this year, including academic counseling, college planning and application assistance,
financial aid and scholarship information, work experience guidance, community service
opportunities, career planning, and more!
Watch this space weekly for coming events and valuable information for all high school
students and parents.
Here are a few upcoming events of interest:
- Wednesday, September 27, 2017: CVUSD College Information Night at
Newbury Park High School. Enjoy a college, career, and test-prep fair from 4:30
until 6:30 pm, and then, from 6:15 until 8 pm, take advantage of a variety of
college related workshops. This is a very popular event, so arrive early! And, plan
for dinner, as several food trucks will be featured!
- Wednesday, October 11, 2017: The PSAT is coming to River Oaks!
We will be offering the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test (PSAT) for our
college bound juniors on Wednesday, October 11 at 8 am. We strongly
recommend this practice test for students in grade eleven. While the PSAT can
also be taken by 9th and 10th graders, those students may want to wait until the
spring, when we will offer the PSAT 10 for our younger students. We will be
sending out detailed information regarding the PSAT, including the registration
process, within the next few weeks.
Other Items of Interest:
- Attention, Employed Students! All Work Permits must be renewed at the
beginning of each school year, even if you have one that was recently approved.

Career Education Center offers a wide variety of courses for high school students.
While many of the CEC courses are yearlong, there are a few that are offered on a
semester basis. Check the catalog at the Ventura County Career Education Center
website, or in paper form in the River Oaks front office. If your student is
interested in a CEC course, you may register online at www.vcoe.org/cec, or by

center! We will be offering the SAT, SAT with Essay, and the Subject Tests here
at ROA in on Saturday, November 4, 2017, and again on June 2, 2018. If your
student is planning to take the SAT this year (typically 12th graders in the fall,
and 11th graders in the spring, visit the College Board website at
www.collegeboard.org. We do not register students for the SAT, and we cannot
save seats for our students. We only have 40 spaces available, so register soon!
This is a terrific testing environment, so take advantage! Again, contact Richard at
firstname.lastname@example.org for further information!
