Raleigh Charter High School is a college preparatory institution with a rigorous academic program. We are committed to providing a comprehensive college counseling program with personalized service to the students and their families. Our goal is to help students identify colleges and universities that best match their needs and abilities. Our counselors assist the students throughout the college search and admissions process. We encourage students to take advantage of the curriculum offered at RCHS and to develop interests outside the classroom by taking advantage of the many extracurricular opportunities offered here. Since our mission is to graduate citizens of the world, we also encourage students to become involved in their communities.
We have two college counselors who work with students across different grade levels. Mr. Robinson works with students in advisories on the first floor, and Mr. Palmieri works with students in advisories on the second floor. Read more about our counselors below!
