Accuplacer and Accuplacer Test Prep

Those students that are planning to attend a technical college will need to take the ACCUPLACER, including those students that have scored less than a 18 in any subject area on the ACT.

The ACCUPLACER will be held at RHS Superior Diesel Advanced Learning Center on Tuesday, October 25th, 1st-3rd hour.  There is no cost to students that take it at RHS, if they take the ACCUPLACER Test Prep.  If the test prep is not taken, the cost is $20 to take the test.  The ACCUPLACER Test Prep will be held, on Tuesday, October 18th third hour, in the Principal’s Conference Room.  

Students must sign up in Student Services no later than Friday, October 14th.




The PSAT/NMSQT testing is available for Sophomores and Juniors on Wednesday, October 19th in the RHS Superior Diesel Advanced Learning Center from 8:00 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. Registration is in the RHS Student Services Office. Cost is $15 and payable at the time of registration. Please make checks payable to Rhinelander High School or RHS.

The National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is only for Juniors.  It is a highly competitive scholarship program that is allocated to those that place in the top 1% of all 11th grade scores worldwide. (Currently, 1.5 million U.S. students participate in this exam).

The PSAT/NMSQT measures critical thinking skills that are important for success in college, including critical reading, math problem-solving and writing skills.

Taking the PSAT/NMSQT enables students to get feedback about important academic skills, seek information from colleges, enter scholarship competitions, prepare for the SAT and initiate the college planning process.

Selective Service System Online Registration

Attention Male Students Turning 18 Years of Age:

REGISTRATION: You must register within 30 days of turning 18 years of age. A valid social security number is required for online registration. You can register with Selective Service by clicking here: Selective Service Registration  

If you do not have a social security number, you must register by filling out a paper registration form, signing, and mailing it.

Male students who fail to register with Selective Service are ineligible for Federal student loan and grant programs, including Pell Grants, Federal Work Study, and Stafford Loans. (Parents who want to borrow a PLUS loan do not have to satisfy the registration requirement.) Several states have also made Selective Service registration a prerequisite for state financial aid and for matriculation at public colleges and universities. Even if you disagree with the requirement, you must register. Failure to register can have a serious negative impact on your ability to obtain a driver's license, qualify for financial aid, pursue an education, or obtain employment.

Students are always welcome to stop in Student Services with questions.


Nicolet Area Technical College Visit


A representative from Nicolet College will be here on Wednesday, September 28th 6th and 7th hour to meet with interested students and answer any questions you may have.  Please sign up in Student Services for an appointment.
