Family Resources

Rocketship Alma is OUR school, and I say that with so much pride in my heart. This faculty and organization truly cares for its students and their families. We've felt like a part of the Alma family since my oldest child attended kindergarten the founding year. I always hoped that my daughters would go to college. Now I know they will go to college and be successful because of the solid educational foundation built within them at Rocketship Alma Academy!

— Julia Alvarez, Founding Parent
