About

Mission Statement

Rocket City Scholarship Granting Organization was founded to help provide families in the Tennessee Valley with a true choice in the education of their children. We hope to accomplish this by giving scholarships to students who are not thriving in their current school environment so that they can attend a school that meets their educational needs.

Who We Are

Rocket City Scholarship Granting Organization is a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to income-eligible students seeking a school that best fits their educational needs.

What We Do

We give K-12 scholarships to income-eligible families whose children are not thriving in their current educational environment. Rocket City SGO works directly with the schools, streamlining the process for parents and ensuring every child has an easy transition to their school of choice.

How We Do It

While Rocket City SGO is technically funded by the State of Alabama, taxpayers must tell the state to direct our taxes in support of an SGO. Our scholarships are funded when you direct your corporate and individual Alabama state tax liability to us through the Department of Revenue.
