Georgia Tax Credit
The Georgia Tax Program allows you to maximize your monetary contributions to Excel. The Georgia Private School Tax Credit allows eligible private citizens and corporations to receive tax credits for donations made to ECA through the Student Scholarship Organizations (SSOs). SSOs provide student scholarships to parents of eligible children who plan to attend ECA.
 
A tax credit from the Georgia Department of Revenue will be made in the amount equal to the donation just for participating in this program. Participants will receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for redirecting your income tax to Excel Christian Academy. This opportunity is available for anyone who pays Georgia income taxes!
