The rioting charge is in connection with disorder in the Denmark Street area on Sunday 2 September.
The teenager also faces three charges of assaulting police, resisting arrest and possession of a class B drug. These charges are connected to an incident in the Boundary Way area of north Belfast on Thursday.
He will appear before Belfast Magistrates' Court on Friday 26 October.
Missiles were hurled at police in riot gear in the Carlisle Circus, Clifton Street and Antrim Road areas of the city on Sunday 2 September after a loyalist crowd gathered to protest at a republican march organised by the Henry Joy McCracken Republican Flute Band.
On Wednesday four people were also charged in connection with disorder in the area on the same date.
They included a 22-year-old also arrested on suspicion of breaching a parades commission ruling on Saturday 25 August, and a 23-year-old arrested on suspicion of provocative conduct in the Donegall Street area on 12 July.
