Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program

Submit your 2020 GOAL Tax Credit Application today!

In 2008 the Georgia Education Expense Credit became law, allowing taxpayers to take a credit against their Georgia income taxes for amounts contributed to qualifying K-12 Student Scholarship Organizations (SSO). By redirecting a portion of your state tax liability to Mill Springs Academy through our partner SSO, Georgia GOAL, taxpayers receive a 100% state income tax credit!

This is a proven opportunity that is a win-win-win for taxpayers, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply redirecting a portion of your GA State tax liability to Georgia GOAL for a 100% Georgia income tax credit, you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Mill Springs Academy education.
