Rho Kappa is the only national organization for high school students that recognizes excellence in the field of social studies. The mission and purpose of the Kingwood High School chapter of Rho Kappa is to promote scholarship and to recognize academic excellence in Social Studies.
Our Rho Kappa chapter was created to enhance the student's civic education at Kingwood High School and incentivize participation in Advanced Academics. The coursework requirements for membership reflect a commitment to the liberal arts and social sciences, which serve as the foundation of civic education.
Rho Kappa KHS had its first induction ceremony at Kingwood United Methodist Church in November 2017.
Our 2018-2019 induction ceremony will be at Kingwood High School on October 1 in LGI 2210 at 6:00 PM.
Dues for 2018-2019 will be $10. Please pay your dues using RevTrack on the KHS website.
Sophomores and Juniors: Applications to join Rho Kappa for the 2019-2020 school year will be available spring 2019.
Seniors: We will order honor cords for the Class of 2019 graduation ceremony in February 2019.
