Carpool Database Now Open
RCHS Community

NOTE: Returning families, please help us in welcoming our new families by including your information so that new families who live near you will have the option to participate in your carpool.

The carpool database is now open. Any students needing carpool must enter their information into the database for every year that they participate. A link to the database is available on the transportation page (under the "Students" tab) of this website.

In July, you will receive a list of the families who live near you so that you may arrange your student's carpool.

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.
