2014-2015 Lottery Results

On Saturday, March 22, 2014 Raleigh Charter High School held its admissions lottery.

1027 students applied to RCHS for the 2014-2015 school year.
At the lottery we accepted 86 students to RCHS.
In addition, prior to the lottery we accepted 63 siblings and faculty children.

The lists of numbers on this website do not include those siblings and faculty children. On this website, we list the numbers of students who were accepted or placed on a waiting list.

Students whose numbers do not appear here are denied admission since their number was drawn after we had filled all accepted and waiting lists slots.

Get Ready for the Second Annual RCHS Community Crosswalk!

Raleigh Charter’s Club Council will hold its second annual Community Crosswalk on Fiday, May 2nd on the Raleigh Charter campus, from 12:40 until 2:40. We will be exploring the ways in which we can maintain the traditions we have developed as a school, while remaining open to change: “Preservation and Progress.”

Students will engage in panel discussions on the role of service at RCHS, arts in the community, and the relationship between alumni and current students. There will also be student research presentations, home-cooked southern food, and photography celebrating a year of RCHS activities. While the event is geared towards students, parents are also free to attend. We encourage students to come out to discuss, learn, and imagine what the future holds for RCHS!

Opportunities for Student-to-Student Tutoring
Raleigh Charter Tutoring Club works by matching tutors and peers based on what subjects tutors would like to teach and what subjects peers need help in. The tutors and peers can then decide when they want to meet up. It will often be one-on-one sessions which can occur during lunch, before school, after school (in the collaborative study hall), in Math Lab, etc. We recommend that tutors and peers meet at least once a week. View the tutoring calendar by clicking on "Tutoring Opportunities" under the "Students" tab.
