Student_Handbook.jpgAttending RCI

Riverton Collegiate offers a broad range of courses in a variety of subject areas. Through a shared campus initiative with Arborg Collegiate, we have been able to extend this programming to include courses that we would not normally be able to offer, including Industrial Technology, Choral / Band, and a host of elective courses.


Our day is composed of 5 one hour periods. All courses are taught a minimum of one hour per day in a semester, or one hour every other day for year-long courses. Courses in ELA and Mathematics are given more “weight” in terms of instructional time, and therefore receive additional scheduling. With a couple of exceptions, grade 11 and 12 ELA and Math are scheduled for the equivalent of 9 hours per 6 day cycle. 


Current Students:

Each spring, we carry out registration for the next school year. Students are typically given a survey to complete that gives us some indication as to the interest level in various coursers. Based on this, we consult with our partner school, Arborg Collegiate, and develop a complementary timetable.

A formal registration form is then sent home with the student. Parental signatures are required as evidence that the parents are aware of the course choices made by the student.

New Students:

Students transferring from another school, other than Riverton Early Middle School, are required to submit a registration form. If the student resides outside of the catchment area of Riverton Collegiate, a "school of choice" form is to be completed. This form is available from the school office. Finally, for students who are in care with Child and Family Services, a "students in care" form must be submitted to the school prior to an intake meeting being held.

Student Handbook

The purpose of the student handbook is to outline important procedures, rules and expectations of the school. All students are expected to be familiar with this information.

It is everyone’s job to make this a positive learning environment and we all contribute to that in our own way. That’s what this handbook is all about.

Students are encouraged to check out the FAQ section of the website for information on courses, credits, and graduation.

School Fees

It is our intention to minimize costs that parents / families face. We feel that any student should be able to attend school without incurring any additional costs.

Depending on the program choices that students and their families make, there may be costs from time to time. For example:


Student in progams like Metals or Woods or Art may complete the program without additional costs. However, some may choose to take on more elaborate projects, and are responsible for additional costs.

Students in Home Ec / Clothing, Housing and Design may be charged a small materials fee. Students get to keep their personal project and need to pay for the materials, typically around $20 for the average project. Students may be charged for materials used in goods that are intended for the student to take home for personal use


Students in the Band program may face instrument rental charges. Rental agreements are typically established between parents and private companies such as Long and McQuade or St. John's Music. The school is not a party to these rental agreements.

Students must pay fees for instruments they may rent from the school.

Extra Curricular and Field Trips

Sports and tournament fees are covered by the school as much as possible. Costs associated with travel and tournaments - meals and accomodation for example - are beyond the school's responsibility. Additional sports fees may arise from time to time should teams participate in additional tournaments

From time to time, fees may be charged for field trips, team trips or special events to recover actual expenses, including transportation, accommodation, meals, entrance fees and equipment rental

Students pay for and keep their own sports uniforms, though we do have some that can be loaned to those who do not wish to purchase their own uniform.

Other Costs

Anything for which the student / family receives value and is optional is not considered a fee - for example, student photos, school clothing, etc..

Student fees

Grade 9-12 - For the 2017-2018 school year, RCI wil charge a student fee of $20.00 per student. Each paid student fee includes a student card and a $10 discount on the purchase of a yearbook

Student fees should be paid the first week of classes. Payment may be made in the school office. Cheques may be made out to "Riverton Collegiate". A receipt will be issued upon payment.

A portion of these fees is used to support school spirit events and other such actitivies carried out by students, for students.

Students are not required to pay student fees, but will not be eligible for the benefits of paying student fees. These include:

  • a $10 coupon towards school yearbook
  • a student card
Fee payment is first applied to any outstanding charges the student may have incurred, such as lost or damaged book charges. 

Repeater Courses

Students who sign up to take a repeater course are required to pay a fee of $50 prior to registration in the course. Repeater courses are much like summer school courses that are offerred in other school jurisdictions, but are completed during the school year. Students must have unsuccessfully completed a course to qualify for a repeater course.

Information about other courses can be found in the FAQ section.  This includes things like:

  • Private Music Option
  • Cadets
