Our Tax Credit: A Big Impact to Students
At Atlanta Girls’ School, the Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program makes an extraordinary impact on our school—providing financial aid for highly qualified students with financial need.
Through the program, state residents, S- and C-corporations, LLCs, partnerships and trusts can redirect a portion of their Georgia tax liability to a Student Scholarship Organization (SSO) in support of financial aid at independent schools of their choice.
When you participate, you receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit to your state income tax bill as well as a charitable giving deduction for federal income tax purposes.
Why should I participate?
In addition to the many ways that the program benefits AGS and its students, participating individuals and couples receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit and, in many cases, a federal income tax deduction. Corporations that participate also receive tax benefits.
Tax Credit Limits
- $2,500 married filing jointly

Participation in the Georgia Private School Tax Credit Program is NOT a charitable donation to Atlanta Girls’ School; rather, it’s a redirection of tax liability already owed to the state of Georgia. We hope you will also contribute to our annual Fund for AGS each year to help AGS fund other important educational priorities.
About Financial Aid:
Tax credit funds are an important part of AGS’s overall financial aid resources, and restricted to students starting at AGS in 6th grade or matriculating to AGS from public schools in any grade. Funds are assigned based on a family’s demonstrated financial need.
