You Have a Choice

At Rocket City Scholarship Granting Organization we know your child’s education is important to you. That’s why we are working to ensure you have a choice, regardless of your income. The Alabama Accountability Act of 2013 gives parents of Alabama K5-12 students the flexibility to choose the school environment that best serves the unique learning needs of each child.

Specifically, the Accountability Act provides a tax credit to individuals and corporations who contribute to a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) such as Rocket City SGO. Those donations are used by SGOs like Rocket City SGO to grant scholarships for income-eligible students to attend a public, private school, or magnet school that meets their needs better than the public school for which they are currently zoned.

Do You Qualify?

Scholarships may only be granted on behalf of students who meet the eligibility requirements of the Accountability Act. Students must:

  • Be a member of a household whose total annual income meets the requirements of the Accountability Act.
  • Be eligible to attend a public school in the preceding semester or is starting school in Alabama for the first time.
  • Reside in Alabama.

The schools do not determine which students will receive scholarships. However, we do require that the student be accepted into a participating school before applying, and school officials must provide documentation of this before the application will be processed. 

We request that parents or guardians contact the desired school to confirm that the school participates in the SGO program, and to complete all acceptance requirements for their student before filling out an application. Verification that the student has been accepted into the participating school will be required before any application will be processed.
