Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program

Sage School is pleased to participate in The Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program.  This opportunity allows Georgia residents and C-Corporations to redirect a portion of their Georgia tax liability to a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) in support of the financial aid program at a private school of their choice.  Participants receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit on their state income taxes and a charitable deduction on their federal return.

Sage School partners with Apogee Scholarship Fund, a state approved Student Scholarship Organization (SSO), to enable the Sage community to participate in the Georgia Private School Tax Credit program.

How Does This Help Our School?

You are already paying income taxes to the state. Why not redirect some of those taxes to provide for Sage School? When you redirect your Georgia income taxes to Sage School, you can designate that the contribution be used to provide financial aid at Sage School. Our school is then able to:

  • Increase the amount of financial aid that can be offered to new students
  • Preserve more of our existing financial aid to assist families already enrolled
  • Increase school enrollment
  • Increase tuition income
  • Increase the funds available to improve educational and extracurricular offerings
  • Further our mission by reaching more children with dyslexia and other language learning differences
