Enrollment for the 2018-2019 School Year begins January 8 and ends February 23. Please see below for information and applications.
Here is a short video in which our students and staff explain the many good things about RCS: https://youtu.be/VuQVX-cIVpA.
Roxboro Community School enrolls students pursuant to North Carolina General Statute. Students must be residents of North Carolina at the time of the lottery. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Division of Charter Schools mandates that applications from out-of-state residents are ineligible for admission unless proof of North Carolina residency can be provided prior to the date of the lottery.
Only one application may be submitted per child. RCS does give enrollment priority to siblings of currently enrolled students who were admitted to the school in a previous year, and to employees’ children, but they must fill out the appropriate application and attend their assigned Orientation Meeting.
If multiple birth siblings apply for admission and a lottery is needed, RCS will enter one surname into the lottery to represent all of the siblings. If that surname is selected, all of the multiple birth siblings will be admitted.
Roxboro Community School, first chartered in 2006, serves students in grades six-12. We are a public college-preparatory school that provides a rigorous honors level curriculum. Students are encouraged to achieve their own levels of excellence as both students and citizens.
RCS is fully accredited by AdvancED and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
Over the past three years, RCS has twice earned the designation A+ NG for its performance on the North Carolina School Report Card. It was an Honor School of Excellence under the 2011-12 ABCs of Public Education in North Carolina. This honor places us in the Top Ten Percent of Academic Achievement in all of North Carolina’s Public Schools.
RCS operates on a traditional schedule and has six 61-minute periods daily. The school occupies the historic and renovated Roxboro Cotton Mill. Community service and citizenship are integral curricular and extracurricular components.
RCS receives funding from the state of North Carolina and local counties. Charter schools do not receive funding for building construction, purchase, lease, or renovations.
Our athletic program offers basketball, soccer, tennis, volleyball, baseball, golf, lacrosse, cheer and softball. Our teams compete as members of the NCHSAA North Central Conference and the Central Carolina Middle School Conference.
Our classes are taught by highly qualified teachers, and over half of our staff holds masters degrees or higher.
Roxboro Community School is committed to being the best example for technology use in an educational setting by enhancing the learning environment, and teaching students to become critical thinkers. We are dedicated to use technology to educate our students in a real-world atmosphere. Laptops are assigned to all students and staff; wireless networking is available throughout the school building; classrooms are technology driven and teachers provide hands-on learning with the latest, state-of-the-art equipment.
The mission of Roxboro Community School is to achieve and maintain educational excellence by providing a small, inviting and nurturing school that focuses on grades six through 12. RCS values and respects each member of our school family, thus enabling everyone to become effective, productive citizens.
RCS provides an environment that directs our students to focus on relevant and rigorous learning that will continue after high school. It is the vision of our school to create educated, responsible and productive men and women who are equipped to face the challenges of the 21st Century.
