Raleigh Charter High School is a public, college-preparatory school that serves students from North Carolina. Admission to the school is by public lottery.

All applications for students accepted by NC charter schools must be from parents who are currently legal residents of North Carolina. The domiciliary must be in place at the time of the student application. In order to be included in the admissions lottery, an application to RCHS must list a North Carolina residence.

Prospective students complete an application for admission to Raleigh Charter High School. Applicants must be ready for Common Core Math I/Algebra I or a higher mathematics course in the ninth grade. A math placement form indicating that the student is prepared for Common Core Math I/Algebra I or higher level math course and signed by the current math teacher, completes the application. During high school, students must take at least four courses in math and at least two consecutive years of a foreign language in order to graduate from Raleigh Charter High School. We offer math courses from Common Core Math I to Calculus III. Many courses are offered only at the honors (advanced) level.
Qualified siblings of current students and of RCHS graduates who attended all four years at RCHS and qualified children of the principal, teachers, and teacher assistants have preferences for admission.
We hold Information Sessions to give prospective students and parents a chance to view the school campus, to visit staff members, to pick up an application and information packet, and to hear programs about our school.
