Rocketship Rise Academy

On August 22, 2016, Rocketship opened its first school on the East Coast in Southeast DC’s Ward 8.  Rocketship Rise Academy at the Ruth Rales Campus launched with 448 Rocketeers making it the single largest opening in DC's twenty year history of charter schools.
This new state-of-the art campus would not have been possible without the persistent, resilient, and enthusiastic support of our founding parents. From advocating for our new school at community meetings, leading tours, meeting with local officials, and naming the school, parents are the backbone of Rocketship Rise Academy.  Our parents even interviewed and helped select our founding teachers, as featured in The Washington Post.

"Parents are interviewing teachers for a new D.C. charter school."
