May 21, 2020: At this time, most of our financial aid funding for the 2020-2021 school year has already been distributed. If you wish to submit your financial aid application, the Financial Aid Committee will keep your family in mind, should additional funding become available.
If you wish to submit your financial aid application to be considered for Georgia GOAL funding, please do so as soon as possible as funding is extremely limited at this time. Please note, Georgia GOAL is only available to students coming from a Georgia public school.
Financial aid is available for Pre-K through 12th-grade students. These need-based awards, available through various funds including Georgia GOAL, are intended to provide supplemental assistance only.
SCPS financial assistance is based on the need of the family and has no bearing on our admission decisions. To be considered for tuition assistance, please complete an application online with FACTS Grant & Aid. There is a $35 fee for each family that applies for financial aid.
In addition to completing the FACTS application, SCPS requires that families also submit copies of tax forms directly to FACTS. In those cases where parents are not living together, the resources of both parents will be considered in establishing the family’s level of need. Award decisions are made by the SCPS Financial Assistance Committee.
There is no specific income level that qualifies a family for need-based aid; every case is individual. The evaluation process considers income, amount of debt, number of people in the family, and assets. The entire process is strictly confidential.
Please note: Georgia GOAL is only available to students coming to SCPS from a Georgia public school.
Continuation of Financial Aid
Financial aid awards are renewable each year as long as there is a continued demonstrated need and the student maintains acceptable academic and behavioral standards. Families must reapply each year and the amount of each award may vary from year to year.
