Update posted Apr. 17, 2014
We are currently unable to accept new school applications as we continue to test and debug our new online application system, which is replacing our old paper-based application process.
However, if you are already a RYS and would like to upgrade (add a new track or designation), you can log in to your account and do so now! View our FAQ on how to upgrade a RYS.
We plan to reopen RYS applications to everyone soon. Add your name to this list and we will notify you when we're ready for you to apply.
For now, you can create a Basic User Account and prepare your syllabus so that you're ready to apply as soon as we announce that we'll be accepting applications—this will make the process run more smoothly and quickly for you. To prepare your syllabus: Review and utilize the Syllabus Guide (PDF) and the Syllabus Worksheet (XLS) (PDF). You will be able to copy and paste information from the worksheet into the online application.
• Syllabus Guide (PDF) - a guide designed to help you understand how to prepare and successfully submit a syllabus using the Syllabus Wizard in our RYS online application form
• Syllabus Worksheet - examples of syllabus entries and a blank worksheet for you to use when preparing the syllabus for your RYS (XLS) (PDF)
