GOAL Scholarship

The State of Georgia has created an opportunity for taxpayers to redirect a portion of their Georgia state income taxes to improve educational opportunities in Georgia. Woodward Academy partners with the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, a student scholarship organization that allows participants to redirect a portion of their Georgia tax liability to Woodward Academy. This program provides opportunities for more students to receive a Woodward Academy education.
