GCA Partners with GOAL

We would like to share some EXCITING news you may have not heard. The State of Georgia has created an incredible opportunity for individuals and corporations to redirect a portion of their Georgia state income tax to provide scholarships for eligible students to attend Georgia private schools.

That's right! A 2008 law allows individuals and corporations to receive a Georgia income tax credit (and federal income tax deduction) for redirecting their state income tax payments to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program. GOAL uses these contributions to provide private school scholarships to students who are eligible to enroll in Pre-K or kindergarten or who are transferring from a Georgia public school to grades 1-12. Taxpayers can designate the school at which these scholarships will be awarded! GCA has partnered with GOAL, so this means that your contribution can be used to support children who want to attend Grace Christian Academy.

How does this help you, the school, and the children?
You are already paying income taxes to the state. Why not redirect some of those taxes to provide Georgia children with Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning? That's what GOAL stands for, and it means that children will have an opportunity to attend our school and receive a wonderful Christian education. When you redirect your Georgia income taxes to GOAL and designate that the contribution be used to provide scholarships at GCA, the school is able to:

1. Offer financial aid to new students
2. Increase school enrollment
3. Keep your current tuition down
4. Increase the funds available to improve educational offerings

Please visit the GOAL website @ or call Cile Warr at the GCA Development Office @ 246-3825 for more information.
