Raleigh Charter High School teaches students in an active, social, and creative model of learning that involves inquiry, discovery, and integrating disciplines. The school offers courses at many ability levels: Standard, Honors, Enriched Honors and Advanced Placement. The curriculum at Raleigh Charter High School is based on the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, and we offer students many opportunities for increased pace, in-depth study, and enrichment. View the 2023-2024 RCHS Course Guide.
The majority of our courses are Honors, Enriched Honors, and Advanced Placement. Students who have solid study habits will find this level of curriculum to be appropriate. Since we assign homework every evening (30 minutes per night in most courses and 30-45 minutes per night in Advanced Placement courses), students who possess the discipline to complete homework every evening and to arrive prepared for each class the following day will do well at RCHS.
Ninth-grade applicants must be ready to take Math I or a higher mathematics course and Honors courses in Science, English and History. Students take four required courses in Mathematics while in grades 9 through 12 in order to graduate from Raleigh Charter High School.
