You are already paying income taxes to the state. Why not redirect some of those taxes to provide tuition assistance to financially eligible St. Luke School students?
Since 2013, St. Luke School has partnered with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) created through the Georgia Education Expense Tax Credit Program. This program enables Georgia residents, corporations, trusts, LLCs, and partnerships the opportunity to designate a portion of their state tax liability to the school’s financial aid program. There is virtually no cost to participate, but it has a tremendous impact on St. Luke School’s ability to provide financial aid to students in need.
