Brandon Hall’s approach to financial aid is quite simple. We want to offer “mission fit” students that may not have the financial means to attend BHS, the opportunity to be educated in an environment that prepares students for college, embraces diversity, celebrates students’ strengths, encourages athleticism, the arts, and creativity while fostering global citizenship. In order to help families to attend Brandon Hall, we offer various types of financial aid assistance at our school.

GOAL Scholarship

The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program provides tuition scholarships to children who desire to attend private K-12 schools. When making application to a participating school for receipt of a GOAL Scholarship, families must provide proof of eligibility.

Eligibility Requirements:

In order to receive a GOAL Scholarship, a student must meet all eligibility requirements contained in the law under which we operate, and must meet all admission requirements set by the GOAL participating school and must go through the school's application process before receiving a scholarship.

The law under which this program operates defines student eligibility as follows:

  • To qualify for receipt of a scholarship, a student must be a Georgia resident who is currently enrolled in, and has attended a Georgia secondary or primary public school for a least 6 weeks* immediately prior to receiving a scholarship or tuition grant under this law, or who is eligible to enroll in a qualified Pre-K4, Kindergarten, or 1st grade program.

*The six week attendance requirement may be waived in the following cases:

  1. A student is or would be assigned to a public school that the Office of Student Achievement determines to be a low-performing school based on the school attendance zone of his or her primary residence, or
  2. A student is the subject of officially documented cases of school based physical violence or student related verbal abuse threatening physical harm, or
  3. A student was enrolled in an official home study program for at least one year immediately prior to receiving a scholarship or tuition grant under this law.

Under the guidelines, the maximum scholarship is subject to change annually. In order to validate the family’s adjusted gross income, parents are required to provide the school copies of the first two pages of their most recently filed federal income tax return.

Once a student is accepted to Brandon Hall, has indicated an interest in the scholarship, and has been deemed eligible, the school will submit a scholarship recommendation to GOAL for its consideration and approval. Awards are subject to the availability of designated scholarship funds and the adherence by the student and parents to all applicable school policies. Parents must reapply annually.
