Admissions Timeline

Admissions Process

The RINI Middle College is an open enrollment public charter school that enrolls students from across the state of Rhode Island. As a statewide charter school, we purposefully seek to enroll a demographically diverse student body as essential to our mission of diversifying the future nursing and healthcare workforce. When RINI receives more enrollment applications than available seats, admission is determined through a blind lottery.
