Georgia Goal

Interested in redirecting your state income tax liability for a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit, to support Hebron Christian Academy’s financial aid program? Please visit here for more information about our partnership with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program.
The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program is much more than a way to redirect your tax dollars. GOAL is a tax strategy that allows Georgia taxpayers to redirect a portion of their state income tax for a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit, to provide financial aid for eligible students to attend Hebron Christian Academy.

How Does This Help Our School?

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 (GOAL)? When you redirect your Georgia income taxes to GOAL, you can designate that the contribution be used to provide financial aid at Hebron Christian Academy. Our school is then able to:
  • Increase the amount of financial aid that can be offered to new students
  • Preserve more of our existing financial aid to assist families already enrolled
  • Increase school enrollment
  • Increase tuition income
  • Increase the funds available to improve educational and extracurricular offerings
  • Further our mission by reaching more families desiring Christian education
