Georgia Private School Tax Credit – GRACE Scholars, Inc.

GRACE Scholars Inc., is the official student scholarship organization (SSO) for the schools sponsored by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta. All students receiving GRACE Awards have demonstrated financial need as determined by a third-party analysis of a family's ability to pay tuition.

Schools in the Archdiocese of Atlanta reserve the right to decline funding from SSOs which do not award scholarships based on financial need. In addition, the maximum amount of SSO scholarships awarded to students in Archdiocesan Schools is the lowest of the following: student's calculated financial need; 80% of the tuition rate applicable to the student; an index of per-pupil public school spending in Georgia; and, the maximum cap established by the local school.

GRACE Scholars, Inc., welcomes the transfer of funding from one SSO to another as allowed by state law. In these instances, the school reserves the right to award GRACE scholarships in accordance with local procedures.

In 2008, the state of Georgia passed legislation that established the Georgia Private School Tax Credit. This law allows Georgia taxpayers to divert a portion of their state tax obligation to a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) of their choosing to be used as financial aid at a Georgia private school. Soon after this piece of legislation was passed, the Archdiocese of Atlanta partnered with the Archdiocese of Savannah to form GRACE Scholars, Inc., the Catholic SSO allowed under this law.

In 2018, the state of Georgia increased the allotted amount to $110 million dollars that can be diverted to private school education.

If you owe Georgia State taxes and would like to divert a portion of those taxes to Christ the King School, or any other Catholic school in Georgia, please consider participating in the Georgia Private School Tax Credit program.
