High School Application & Admission Requirements
- Who May Apply to Attend RMCTC?
Students in grades 10, 11, and 12 who reside in the Muhlenberg or Reading School Districts may apply to attend RMCTC. Students must complete the RMCTC application process to be considered for admission. Students may obtain an RMCTC application from a school counselor at their high school, on the RMCTC website, or by contacting the RMCTC Student Services Office at 610.921-7300. Students must complete the application and return it to their high school school counselor as the first step in the application process. For high school students who are not enrolled at Muhlenberg or Reading high schools (students who are home-schooled, attending private school or parochial school, etc.), they may print the application from this website and submit it to their school counselor.
- How is Admission Granted?
Enrollment at RMCTC is limited. Therefore, each applicant is evaluated based on the information provided in the application, including the student’s academic records. These materials are reviewed and evaluated specific to the student’s attendance, compliance with school rules, grades, essay, and evidence of career planning, interest, and preparation. The most qualified applicants will be granted admission until all openings in that program are filled. The remaining applicants are then placed on a waiting list for potential placement as openings occur in those programs.
The student’s academic records must be submitted with the application to be considered for admission. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed and will be returned to the student’s high school. Applications from students with exceptionalities or disabilities will be received, processed, and responded to in the same manner as all other applications. Final selection of all students is contingent upon the final approval of the participating sending school district.
- Process to Apply to RMCTC
Step 1: Interested students obtain an application from the school counselor at their high school.
Step 2: Student completes the application (including both student and parent signatures) and returns the application to the school counselor at their high school.
Step 3: The counselor reviews, completes the application, and forwards it to RMCTC. Once RMCTC reviews and evaluates the application materials, students and parent/guardian are notified of their enrollment status. Typically, students are notified by RMCTC within six weeks of receipt of the application.
- Application Deadline!
Since there are a limited number of openings each year, students should have their application on file at RMCTC by the third Friday in December for the next school year. Late applications will be considered on a space-available basis.
