Officers witnessed the boy throw the device at the Clifton Street building at around 10pm on Saturday.
The device, however, fell short and no damage was caused to the building.
A police spokesman said the incident was being treated as a hate crime.
The boy has been charged with possession of a petrol bomb in suspicious circumstances, throwing a petrol bomb and attempted criminal damage.
He is expected to appear in Belfast Youth Court next month.
