Celebrating 20 Years Together!
RCHS Development Office

We are excited to be celebrating Raleigh Charter's 20th anniversary! Because of you, our families, we have built and sustained RCHS over the last 20 years. Thanks to the support of Phoenix families, we have:

  • Made the move from Pilot Mill to our permanent home on Glenwood Avenue.
  • Managed to fund our budget when per-pupil funding plummeted.
  • Kept class size low, despite these reductions in per-pupil funding.
  • Launched and maintained Flex Days and the Community Work Day program.
  • Purchased new textbooks averaging $5,000 - $15,000 per course.
  • Expanded our digital learning initiative.

In honor of our 20th anniversary, we ask you to consider how you will contribute to our school. At Back-to-School Night we launched our "What's Your 20?" challenge for the Phoenix Fund. Please watch (or rewatch) our slideshow below and donate generously. We appreciate your support of the Phoenix Fund!

Every Family. Every Year.
