RCS offers a college preparatory course of study in a small, nurturing environment. Our students consistently perform higher than state and local levels on end-of-course and end-of-grade tests. For three of the past five years, RCS has received a grade of A on the North Carolina School Report Card. The other two years, we received high B grades. Our graduation rate is consistently near 100 percent. Our graduates have gone on to study at Duke, West Point, UNC-Chapel Hill, N C State University, and other top-rated universities. We have a thriving arts program and a successful athletics program that has earned several conference championships. We believe we offer the best educational opportunities in our area. As a public charter school, RCS does not receive capital funding from local, state or federal tax dollars, therefore, we must maintain our physical plant and grounds through other funding. We rely on donors to help us meet these expenses. We also rely on volunteers to offer services that we would otherwise have to pay for. We rely on donations of goods to help our teachers equip their classrooms. In other words, we can not do our jobs without the help of our parents and community partners.

As a public charter school, RCS does not receive capital funding from the county, state or federal government. We have to use other funds to pay for and maintain our beautiful, historic building. We constantly seek grants to offer our students the best possible tools for an education that will prepare them for future success in college and careers. The support of community donors allowed us to completely renovate the former Roxboro Cotton Mill.
RCS alumni Zac and Tyler Denny, along with their dad, Marc Denny, are helping the eighth graders clean up behind the school in preparation for an outdoor classroom area. The eighth grade team received a $15,000 Go Grant from the North Carolina Outdoor Heritage Advisory Council for the creation of two outdoor classroom areas. These areas will include picnic tables, a portable projector screen and projector, gardening supplies for beautification and a butterfly garden, sun shades, and other equipment. Teachers will utilize this area as an outdoor learning space where students can connect with nature and learn about the natural world with hands-on lessons and activities. Zac and Tyler show the many ways in which RCS alumni stay involved long after they have graduated.
