Participate in Apogee Program

Crossroads Christian School
Financial Aid Funding

Thank you for your interest in contributing to the CCS financial aid fund.  Crossroads Christian School partners with Apogee to redirect a portion of your state income tax dollars to Crossroads Christian under the Georgia School Choice Scholarship Fund – up to $2,500 for married couples filing jointly, $1,250 for married filing separately, and $1,000 for individual filers.  In addition, C-Corporations may contribute up to 75% of their Georgia tax liability to Crossroads through the Apogee program.  Your participation helps make a Christ-centered education affordable to families that might not otherwise be able to send their children to Crossroads.

 

Participants receive a 100% tax credit from the State of Georgia for their contribution amount and it is treated as a charitable deduction for federal tax purposes.  This tax credit serves the unique purpose of utilizing a portion of your Georgia tax liability to provide scholarships to children who otherwise might not have the opportunity to attend the school that best fits their needs.   This program assists families to move their children out of public education and into a Christ-centered education at Crossroads Christian and anyone – alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, staff, friends – literally anyone who pays Georgia income taxes can take advantage of this program and help provide funds for CCS financial aid.
