Family Resources

Rocketship Rise Academy is a brilliant school. The name alone represents a whole new horizon of academics in Ward 8. As a founding parent from this community, I have seen this school's growth and impact. Rocketship has not only impacted my child's life, but mine as well. I am involved as a parent here, and it has taken my mind to a whole new level that I didn't receive growing up. Rocketship is family to our children when they're not at home, providing structure and guidance, and preparing our youth for the future. Giving your child an successful education is worth more than a million dollars. You are rich if your child is enrolled at Rocketship!

— Alisha Tiggett, Founding Parent
