Georgia GOAL Scholarship ProgramSubmit your 2023 GOAL Tax Credit Application today!
The GOAL Program is a remarkable and important opportunity provided to Georgians by our elected officials. 

In exchange for contributions to Georgia GOAL, our partner Student Scholarship Organization, taxpayers receive a 100% state income tax credit!

This is a proven opportunity that is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply contributing to Georgia GOAL for a 100% Georgia income tax credit - in other words, by contributing with dollars you must spend anyway - you will help maximize financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Lakeview Academy education.
