What is GRACE Scholars?
G.R.A.C.E. Scholars, Inc. was created by Archbishop Gregory as a way to make an Archdiocesan Catholic school education a reality for students who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend. It offers families the prospect to access a faith based, academically strong, and community based Catholic school in the State of Georgia. Please click the G.R.A.C.E. logo to be directed to their website where you can discover how easy it is to contribute to this cause AND receive a 100% dollar-for-dollar tax credit. Explore this opportunity to grace a student with a Catholic education!
G.R.A.C.E. Scholars, Inc., is the official student scholarship organization (SSO) for the schools sponsored by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta. All students receiving G.R.A.C.E. Awards have demonstrated financial need as determined by a third-party analysis of a family's ability to pay tuition.
Schools in the Archdiocese of Atlanta reserve the right to decline funding from SSOs that do not award scholarships based on financial need. In addition, the maximum amount of SSO scholarships awarded to students in the Archdiocesan schools is the lowest of the following: student's calculated financial need; 80% of the tuition rate applicable to the student; an index of per-pupil public school spending in Georgia; and the maximum cap established by the local school
G.R.A.C.E. Scholars, Inc. welcomes the transfer of funding from one SSO to another as allowed by state law. In these instances, the school reserves the right to award G.R.A.C.E. scholarships in accordance with local procedures.
