State Income Tax Redirection

The Georgia GOAL program allows Georgia Tax Payers to redirect a portion of their state income taxes each year to support scholarship dollars for deserving students to access private school education. At St. Andrew’s, GOAL recipients are students from public schools who have applied and been accepted based on their academic performance and personal motivation who cannot otherwise afford a St. Andrew’s education. Your participation allows for tax dollars to be redirected to the school in support of a select number of student’s tuition each year, expanding the impact of St. Andrew’s School to make a positive difference.
