• Welcome!  

    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.


    Applications are taken for current Juniors and Seniors in Fall semester of that year.  Sophomores can apply during the last 9 weeks of that school year. Candidates will be notified via email that they are approved.  Once you are approved.....
