Financial Aid

  • Financial Aid is an urgent and continuous need at The Howard School.
  • During the 2015-2016 school year, 16% of Howard School families received financial aid.
  • Because of the measurable difference a Howard School education makes in the lives of our students and their families, we make every effort to ensure that students who need our school’s unique educational approach are not turned away for financial reasons.
  • Gifts designated for financial aid help us provide a Howard School education for all students who need it.

Georgia GOAL Tax Credit

  • In 2008, the Georgia General Assembly passed into law House Bill 1133, which allows individuals and corporations to choose to redirect a portion of their Georgia state income tax dollars for need-based financial aid for public school or Kindergarten-entry students entering an independent school. The Howard School has partnered with Georgia GOAL, a state approved Student Scholarship Organization (SSO), as required by law to administer this tax credit program. While participation in the program does not replace the charitable contributions that we rely on for our Annual Fund and other programs, it does provide critical funding for financial aid.
  • Your participation in the GA GOAL Tax Credit program can be used to support students who want to attend The Howard School, allowing us to increase the financial aid that we can offer new students
  • To participate, please visit the GA GOAL Tax Credit website for more information and for the necessary paperwork.

Planned Giving

  • Donors may wish to include The Howard School as a beneficiary in their will or trust, or as a beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy. Donors may also wish to give a specific amount or give a gift of real estate.
  • Giving in this way can provide donors with significant tax advantages.
  • For more information, please contact the Development Office (404) 377-7436, ext. 229.
