GOAL Scholarship




Do you pay Georgia state taxes?  Would you like to redirect a portion of those taxes to Gatewood instead of the state of Georgia?

The Georgia Education Expense Credit (House Bill 1133), Georgia has joined the five other states that are using tax-credit scholarship programs to provide children from low-income families greater opportunities for access to learning at private institutions like Gatewood.

Gatewood School has been approved as a Qualified School, meeting all the necessary requirements as defined by the State of Georgia. Participation in this program will provide additional financial resources to Gatewood’s financial aid program available to new students and their families. We are working together with the Georgia “GOAL” Scholarship Program, a state-approved student scholarship organization.

Here’s how to get started redirecting your tax dollars:

You may complete the paperwork here.  Make sure to list Gatewood Schools in the Donor School.  If you prefer to complete a paper copy, you may download the paperwork by click here.  Paper forms may be submitted to Gatewood Schools, 139 Phillips Drive, Eatonton, GA 31024 or faxed to GOAL at 877.478.4625.  Gatewood Schools will notify you as soon as you have been approved for the tax credit.  You will have 60 days from the date of the Georgia Department of Revenue’s approval date to submit your payment to GOAL.
