The Mission of GRACE Scholars, Inc.

To provide children from families with financial need throughout the State of Georgia with greater opportunities to secure a quality PK-12 Catholic education.

Our goal is to afford qualifying families a quality education while providing donors with an opportunity to use their tax dollars towards Catholic school scholarships.

I can say so much about the GRACE scholarship. GRACE made a quality education a real opportunity. Without GRACE, my son would have never been able to even dream of getting such a quality education.  As a single mom, private school was never given a thought as a possibility until we heard about the GRACE scholarship.

My support of GRACE Scholars was the easiest decision I ever had to make.  GRACE enables those who cannot afford the cost to attend a Catholic school to benefit from a curriculum that includes moral values and Biblical teachings.  It costs nothing as my contributions are made in lieu of paying state income taxes.  But, the lifelong benefits are priceless to our community and society.

The GRACE scholarship enabled my son and our family to be a part of St. Teresa’s.  We do not know where we would be without it.  St. Teresa’s is like a second home to us and the growth I have seen in my son is remarkable.  GRACE Scholarships make all things possible.
