What is RCH?
RCH stands for Ruston Christian Homeschoolers and is a group of families who get together for field trips, moms' nights, family activities, and more. We do have an optional co-op as well, in which some families participate. Applications for the co-op are accepted during the summer for openings in the fall. Our group has a website and a Facebook group and page. Here are some of the things that go on in the group:
- Family gatherings like Kick-Off in late summer, Fall Family Night with bonfire, Day at the Park in spring and Student Recognition Night/Talent Show right before summer
- Field trips
- Theater, dance, and musical performances
- Christmas Craft Party
- Speech Club
- Dances and formals- Homecoming in the fall and Winter Formal in late winter
- Standardized testing
- Graduation for seniors
- Weekly Co-op
- Moms Nights
- And more...
How Do I Join RCH?
RCH can be joined at any time of the school year, but is usually joined in late summer/early fall. You must be a member to participate in RCH activities. It costs $60 a school year per family. Anyone who can sign the statement of faith is welcome to join. We have members from all over north Louisiana and even from Arkansas, so you do not have to live in Ruston to take part. To join, go on the website and print out the forms. Fill them out and mail them along with the $60 dues to the current presidents, Jason and Kristy Carter at 531 Highway 145, Downsville, LA 71234.
