There will be no lunch sales on exam days. Students should bring a snack for the break. Friday, December 22, is make-up exam day. Make-up exams begin at 8:30. Any student who misses an exam must attend make-up exam day. Students who are present for all of their exams do not have to come to school on December 22.

Any requests for taking exams at an alternate time must be made to Ms. Govan. Parents should contact Ms. Govan by phone or email with an explanation of the reason why an alternate schedule is needed. Students who are sick or who have another excused absence during the week should plan to come on the make-up exam day, but any other kind of planned absence must be discussed with Ms. Govan as soon as possible. We ask that families make sure all winter travel plans begin after Friday, December 22 when mid-year exams have been completed.

Supporting Excellent Education at RCHS

Give a gift to the Phoenix Fund today!

However, these small classes and experienced teachers come at a significant financial cost. Contributions from our school community make it possible for us to provide excellent education to our students today and for years to come. 


Your gifts support Raleigh Charter’s mission of educating knowledgeable, thoughtful, contributing citizens of the world. Your donations give us the ability to: 

  • keep classes small 

  • attract and retain excellent teachers and staff 

  • provide our students and classrooms with essential resources such as Chromebooks and textbooks and basic supplies like dry erase markers and paper

  • pay for our mortgage and building maintenance 

To learn more about how you can support RCHS through the Phoenix Fund, please visit our Giving page.

We are thrilled to celebrate 25 years of Raleigh Charter High School this year! Since our founding, we have been committed to an educational model defined by small classes taught by experienced, passionate, dedicated teachers. We have seen great success using this model and it continues to be a critical part of our mission.
