Invest in the Lakeview Academy community and help provide student scholarships by simply contributing to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program for a 100% Georgia income tax credit. You will make a positive impact on our school, in our community, and across our state!

This is a proven opportunity that is a win-win-win for taxpayer donors, scholarship recipients, and our school community. By simply contributing to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program for a 100% Georgia income tax credit, you will help maximize this source of financial aid for deserving families desiring to receive a Lakeview Academy education.

This valuable Georgia law is a rare and precious opportunity provided to us by our state legislators. Over the past several years, the tax credit program has become so popular that all $58 million in available credits are consumed on the first business day of the year. Without you, this program would not be the success story that it is today.

Your participation will allow us to admit excellent, deserving student applicants to our school. We ask that you “make it count” and help us continue to empower students to reach their potential and achieve their dreams.
