Georgia Tuition Tax Credit

Athens Academy is pleased to participate in the Georgia Tuition Tax Credit Scholarship Program. Athens Academy partners with Apogee, a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) to help Georgia taxpayers redirect a portion of their State tax liability to Athens Academy and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit. Funds received from the program are made available for qualified applicants in the school's existing financial aid program. Since 2009, more than $5.4 million has been raised for our financial aid program.
