Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

Effective immediately for the 2025 contribution season,  the Archdiocese of Atlanta and the board of GRACE Scholars has decided to discontinue operations and transition to the Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning (GOAL) Scholarship Program.

About the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

  • GOAL is Georgia's leading student scholarship organization with over 231 participating schools. The partnership between Georgia GOAL and the Archdiocese of Atlanta will allow even more students the opportunity to attend Blessed Trinity Catholic High School. 
  • As the first Student Scholarship Organization formed in the state of Georgia, GOAL has consistently worked with its participating schools to raise the largest share of taxpayer contributions each year. (Though there are close to 25 Student Scholarship Organizations in the state, GOAL has raised approximately 50% of all contributions statewide, since inception of the program).

Georgia GOAL FAQ's

Who benefits from the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program?

  • GOAL invests significantly in providing its partner schools with the tools, technology and support necessary to compete for the popular tax credit dollars.
  • All Georgia taxpayers are eligible to receive a 100% state income tax credit in exchange for their contributions to Georgia GOAL.

You are already paying income taxes to the state. Why not redirect some of those taxes to provide tuition assistance to financially eligible Blessed Trinity Catholic High School students?
