Eagle's Landing Christian Academy
Saturday, May 25, 2013
In the Spring of 2008 House Bill 1133 was passed and signed in to law. This law allows you, a Georgia State taxpayer, the opportunity to redirect all or a portion of your state income tax dollars to Eagle's Landing Christian Academy via a state approve SSO (Student Scholarship Organization). The SSO that ELCA selected to assist us with this program is Georgia GOAL (Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning) a leading student scholarship organization. As a result of this partnership, donors to Georgia GOAL can designate their contributions to fund scholarships at ELCA.
Students who are eligible to apply for scholarships include those who are presently enrolled in a public school, students entering kindergarten, or students currently on the GOAL program at ELCA. Students are eligible to receive up to 85% of the school's tuition rate, or $9,437 whichever is less based on their parent's adjusted gross income and family size. (Refer to the www.goalscholarship.org website for more information). Each year ELCA will use its regular admissions and financial aid process to identify eligible students who have applied for GOAL. Once they have been identified the candidates and recommended scholarship amounts will be sent to Georgia GOAL for final approval. The number and amout of scholarships awarded will also be based on the redirected funds available for distribution.
If you are an applicant and would like to inquire about how you can become eligible for the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program at ELCA, please contact the ELCA Admissions office at (678) 818-1072.
