OUR PHILOSOPHY FOR FINANCIAL AID:Financial aid is a self-managed process, which means that it is the responsibility of the parent(s)/guardian(s) (together referred to as “Parents”) to track a financial aid application from start to finish. Parents are responsible for ensuring all paperwork is received and all instructions correctly followed; otherwise, the application will not be processed. Although a student may receive financial aid in the form of a scholarship, the fulfillment of tuition obligations ultimately remains the responsibility of the parents. Scholarship funding is not guaranteed; therefore, parents should be prepared to secure alternative methods of meeting their financial obligations under the Tuition Agreement. No application for a GOAL scholarship or other financial aid will be considered without an application for enrollment.
FOR APPLICANTS:HOW DO I APPLY FOR GOAL? Peachtree Academy Private School is an approved GOAL Scholarship school. Families must be able to demonstrate a financial need by filling out a GOAL Scholarship Application and providing the previous year’s tax returns. The scholarship application, including all required paperwork, must be submitted at the same time the enrollment application for Peachtree Academy is submitted. GOAL Scholarship Program administrators will review the GOAL scholarship application and either approve or reject the request. Only those applicants in grades K-12 who are currently attending a public school are eligible to receive GOAL scholarship funds. To apply for the GOAL Scholarship, simply download and complete the scholarship application below and submit it to Peachtree Academy along with the first two pages of your most recently filed Federal Tax Return (Form 1040).
