The Rocket Scholars Foundation began as a question:  "How can we increase the number of students who challenge themselves to higher academic achievement?"  After forming a committee of Reeths-Puffer Alumni and parents, it was decided that a scholarship foundation for students would be a commendable investment for all Reeths-Puffer students today and in the future.

Belief Statement:

High Academic achievement should be the goal of each student's education.  Scholarships rewarding these efforts will foster a culture of rigorous classroom experiences with high academic expectations.
