What is Rho Kappa?

Rho Kappa is the only national organization for high school Juniors and Seniors that recognizes excellence in the field of Social Studies.  

Members must demonstrate excellent academic performance, carrying a 3.0 GPA (unweighted) or higher,  provide service toward their school or community, and exhibit the attributes of leadership and good citizenship.

We are always searching for opportunities in our community and school so that we may use our talents to serve others.
