Participation in this valuable program addresses the School’s critical need for targeted financial aid funding and is not considered a donation. It is, rather, a redirection of tax monies already owed to the state and therefore not related to participation in the annual Mount Vernon Fund.
Each year, the Georgia Private School Tax Credit (GOAL) Program in collaboration with the Mount Vernon Fund plays a critical role in Mount Vernon’s overall financial aid program. Participation in this program makes a positive impact on the School's ability to enroll and retain our students regardless of their family’s ability to pay full tuition.
Mount Vernon partners with Georgia GOAL, the state's leading Student Scholarship Organization (SSO). GOAL works with 152 independent schools throughout Georgia and has awarded scholarships to more than 17,000 deserving students since the program's inception in 2008.
