The exams take place from May 2nd-May 12th. Shifts are approximately 4 hours long and will be held at the Royal Banquet Center.

EOC's will take place online during the RCHS finals Weekk in the computer labs. Volunteers do not need any computer expertise or training. Volunteers/Proctors support the Test Administrator by offering "another set of eyes" during the exam. The shifts for EOC's are 9:30-12:05.

Mississippi Blues in the Drama Room, Free, Friday May 6th
Sustaining Roots Music Community Project

SOOTS presents Memphis musician Reed Turchi on Friday, May 6 from 3:15-5:00 PM in the RCHS Drama Room. Reed studied at UNC-CH and is a dear friend of SOOTS. Reed will play his Mississippi Hill County blues and speak of his experiences developing his own label and working for Ardent Records. If you are interested in the music industry, you'll be interested in what Reed has to share. RCHS students, families and alumni, bring your questions and bring a friend.

Raised outside of Asheville, N.C., Reed is a musician inspired by all things Mississippi. Reed grew up playing New Orleans styles on piano before he became enamored with slide guitar. Reed holds UNC-CH degrees in Entrepreneurship and Southern Studies where he worked closely with renowned folklorist Dr. Bill Ferris. In 2013, he released the album TURCHI, which sparked high praise in the blues-rock community. Reed assembled The Caterwauls, a four-musician band who released their album Speaking In Shadows this past March.

At RCHS, Reed will perform some of his own songs and present interactive lessons on American music, followed by an open Q&A session. Bring a friend and relax after school, enjoying this rare opportunity to watch and interact with a professional musician right here in your own "back yard." Light refreshments will be provided. Enjoy!

2016-2017 Admissions Window is Now Closed

On Saturday, March 26, 2016 Raleigh Charter High School held its admissions lottery.
1197 students applied to RCHS for the 2016-2017 school year.
At the lottery, we accepted 86 students to RCHS.
In addition, before the lottery, we accepted 64 siblings.

The lists of numbers on this website do not include those siblings. 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.
