GOAL Student Scholarship Program

TUITION ASSISTANCE APPLICATION

Enrolling new students for 2018-19 beginning March 8, 2018.
Applications for tuition assistance must be submitted by July 10th deadline.

In 2008, the State of Georgia passed House Bill 1133 which allows interested tax payers to receive a tax credit for donations made to approved Student Scholarship Organizations (SSO).

In essence, this legislation allows you to redirect a portion of your Georgia income taxes (up to $2,500 married filing jointly, $1,250 single) to the eligible private school of your choice through the SSO.   In compliance with this legislation, these scholarships are available for new Konos students seeking private school enrollment. The program is targeted towards low to moderate income families who are looking for an alternative to public education.

Am I eligible?

In order to receive a GOAL Scholarship, you must meet a maximum income requirement and your child must currently be enrolled in a public school or homeschooled for the past year. If you are currently are enrolled at Konos, or are enrolled in another private school, you are not eligible for this scholarship.

How much do I qualify for?

The amount of the scholarship is based on your income level and family size. Note: Scholarship amounts are determined by the GOAL Scholarship Program and Konos Academy and may be less than the maximum scholarship amount when actually awarded.

What if I have more than one child?

Scholarships are available for each eligible child. For example, if your income level and family size qualifies you for a 50% GOAL scholarship, then each of your eligible children would qualify for a maximum of 50% towards their individual tuition costs.

No application for tuition assistance through GOAL will be considered without an application for enrollment.  At Konos Academy, a Tuition Assistance Application must be submitted with your Admission Application and enrollment fee. The application may be completed online or you may obtain a hard copy from the website (www.konos.org) or the Konos administration. Students must first be accepted into Konos Academy before a request from the school to GOAL is made on behalf of the parents. Once your child has been accepted for enrollment, Konos will forward the appropriate paperwork and a school recommendation to the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program for processing. Program officials will then review the recommendation and either approve, modify, or reject the request based on program funding.
