Golden Dome Scholarship


In 2008 the Georgia General Assembly passed House Bill 1133, and Governor Sonny Perdue signed it into law. The new law allows Georgia taxpayers (individuals and corporations) to receive a tax credit when directing a portion of their state income taxes for private school financial aid scholarships. You will receive a dollar for dollar tax credit at the state level against your Georgia income tax liability, as well as a federal income tax deduction for a charitable contribution. Citizens Christian Academy has designated The Golden Dome Scholarship Fund, Inc., a qualified Student Scholarship Organizations (SSO), to manage all contributions for scholarships directed to our school.


 

The goal of The Golden Dome Scholarship Fund is to help Citizens Christian Academy offset the tuition of our

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes. Citizens Christian Academy is accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission and receives no federal, state, or local financial assistance. Citizens Christian Academy has certified teachers who deliver a full day of instruction in an exceptional learning environment. Your participation to this scholarship fund can provide you with a tax credit as well as assist Academy with an opportunity to increase enrollment.
