Welcome Back, Forever Phoenix!

RCHS Alumni Association


On June 15, 2019, during our 20th Anniversary Celebration, the RCHS Alumni Association was officially launched! The Alumni Association is led by a Steering Committee of staff and alumni volunteers who use these three main objectives to guide the activities of the organization: Connect, Serve, and Give Back. Throughout the year, the Alumni Association hosts community service projects, social events, and other programs at RCHS and in the local community. All alumni are automatically members of the Alumni Association; no registration or fees required! Interested in joining the Steering Committee? Email

Our Mission: We, as knowledgeable, thoughtful, contributing citizens of the RCHS Alumni Association, will work together to provide peer-led opportunities for alumni to connect with one another, serve our school and greater community, and give back by supporting the initiatives of Raleigh Charter High School.

CONNECT: We will build connections among alumni and strengthen relationships between alumni and our school.

SERVE: We will volunteer together to help RCHS and the greater community.

GIVE BACK: We will contribute our time and resources in support of Raleigh Charter's initiatives and to ensure the legacy of excellent education.

Alumni Associations Events

Annual Alumni and Faculty Winter Coffee

Held in December at RCHS
Alumni from all years are invited to return to Raleigh Charter for our Annual Winter Coffee. This event is typically held on the last Friday of the semester. Join us during your Winter Break (or your lunch break!) for coffee, cocoa, and treats. Catch up with classmates and visit with your favorite teachers. You could even win a raffle prize! Event details will be shared with alumni via email and Facebook.

Ongoing opportunities throughout the school year

Career Connections: Alumni Panel

Are you interested in sharing your stories and perspective with our students? Join us as a panelist for our 3rd Annual Alumni Career Panel! Our goal is to have a panel composed entirely of RCHS alumni who will share their experiences working "in the real world." Alumni from RCHS classes 2017 and earlier are invited to participate and all current students are encouraged to attend. 

Giving Back to Raleigh Charter

RCHS relies on generous support from our community of current and alumni families. Even though you have graduated, there are many ways you can support the school in the months and years ahead ensuring that the experiences you had at RCHS continue to be available for others. There will be many volunteer opportunities (watch the RCHS home page and alumni newsletter) and we welcome any help you can offer.


Alumni are encouraged to contribute to our Foundation Fund in support of our dedicated teachers and staff. To make a gift online today, click here. To learn more, please visit our Foundation Fund page. Don't forget to check our list of matching gift companies, as many employers may offer ways to match your gift!
