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. The 2022-2023 Rhode Island Charter Public School Common Application is now open! The Rhode Island Department of Education launched EnrollRI last year to support families in accessing the educational path that is best for their children.
