Send Our Scholars to Washington D.C.
Founded in 2009, Galapagos Rockford Charter School was created to serve as a top-quality educational option for children in Rockford, IL. Our goal is to ensure that every one of our scholars graduates from a 4-year college.
This year, Galapagos Rockford Charter School is working to send our third class of 8th grade scholars to Washington, D.C. for three days in June. To visit D.C. is to be immersed in the history and the massively diverse culture of our great nation. For some of our scholars, who rarely travel out of their own neighborhood, this trip could be nothing short of a life-changing experience.
This excellent educational opportunity, a ritual for 8th graders across the country, will not be available to our scholars without your assistance. Through this website, you can help us in our fundraising efforts as we push to raise the money to provide our scholars with this vital experience.
Please give what you can today.
Support Our New Playground
Galapagos Rockford Charter School is excited that it has received support from KaBOOM! and the Dr Snapple Group to build a playground at our Lower Academy campus. These two organizations are donating $16,000 worth of equipment to Galapagos. However, the cost of our playground will be nearly $48,000. Please consider becoming a named donor for our new playground.
