Georgia Private School Scholarship: Funding Sources for K-12 Students

Georgia private school scholarship

The Georgia Private School (Scholarship) Tax Credit Law has created scholarship opportunities for Georgia K-12 elementary, middle, and high school students to receive funding to attend an accredited Georgia private school through student scholarship organizations (SSOs). Generally, the K-12 student must have been enrolled in a Georgia public school for at least 6 weeks before applying. However, if the public elementary, middle, or high school the child is assigned to is identified as a low-performing school, the enrollment and 6-week attendance requirement are waived. What’s your child’s assigned school rating (CCRPI)?

Eligibility for Georgia private school scholarships for public K-12 students is automatic for:

    • Qualified to enroll in Pre K, Kindergarten, or first grade
    • Was enrolled in public school or homeschooled last year
    • Has ever received a scholarship through the program

Waiver of the 6-week public school attendance applies to students who:

    • Based on residence, would be assigned to a low-performing school
    • Documented cases of physical violence or verbal abuse threatening physical harm
    • Homeschooled year prior
    • Previously received a scholarship

Scholarship applications will be available from February 1st through December 15th of each year.
