Make It Rain

(to the tune of "Let It Snow")

The weather outside is frightful,
but our school is so delightful.
It's our favorite place to go,
No more snow, no more snow, no more snow.

With great teachers and small classes,
we don’t even need hall passes.
We’re trying to help the Phoenix Fund gain,
So, make it rain, make it rain, make it rain.

Open House Sessions for Prospective Families, 2017-2018

We will hold an Open House with student and parent information sessions for prospective students on the following dates:

Friday, January 27
5:30-7:30 pm
Thursday, February 2
5:30-7:30 pm

Families are welcome to visit our school at anytime between 5:30 and 7:30 pm on these days to attend an information session, tour the school, and visit with faculty. Completing these activities will take about an hour. Families do not need to RSVP to attend.

Please click here to read more detailed information about our Open Houses. Reviewing this information will make your visit more enjoyable.


Visiting families may park in the spots located around our building. However, parking there is limited. If the lot fills up, parking is available on Washington Street (be careful to obey signs). Additional parking is available in the parking lot of the Methodist Home for Children after 5 p.m. This lot connects our parking lot with Washington Street and is the first parking lot you will see as you turn into our carpool entrance. Please be courteous to our neighbors and do not park in the nearby apartment building parking lots or the lot of the Jordan Child and Family Center.

During Open Houses, traffic will flow counterclockwise and in one direction around our building.

If you have a question about parking, please ask a parent volunteer. They will be in the lot wearing safety vests.

Bad-Weather Make-Up Days

Raleigh Charter High School will hold a bad-weather make-up day on Tuesday, February 21 for the school day missed on January 10.

School will begin at 9:00 and dismiss at 12:05. Seventh period will begin at 8:30. Click here to view the 12:05 Dismissal Schedule.

Inclement Weather Procedure

Should the weather potentially interfere with our normal school schedule, please listen to WRAL-TV (Channel 5) or WRAL-FM (101.5 FM) or visit www.wral.com for information on Raleigh Charter High School's either closing or delaying the opening of school. You can also check our website, Twitter, and Facebook pages for announcements. We decide independently of other schools or systems whether to alter our regular schedule.

We make our decisions about closing due to weather based on the best information we have. We try to consider weather conditions for most of our families, but this can be difficult since our students come from many parts of Wake County and a number of other counties. We understand that parents need to make decisions about travel for their students based on conditions near their homes and how comfortable they are with students traveling under those conditions. Therefore, if RCHS is open, but a student is not able to get to school because of local weather conditions, we will fully support that decision.
