Financial Aid

State Tax Credit Scholarship Program

Fulton Science Academy recognizes that financing an independent school education is a major commitment for families. We work with the Apogee Scholarship Program (ASP) to provide an opportunity for students who are transferring from a Georgia public school to attend Fulton who otherwise may not be able to attend. At this time, ASP donations are the sole source of funds for the FSA Financial Aid pool.

The deadline to apply for financial aid is March 15th of each school year. Families receiving aid must re-apply each year.

Application Requirements

Financial Assistance from FSA through the Apogee Scholarship Program (State Tax Credit Scholarship Program) is solely based on need.
Students must have previously attended a Georgia Public School immediately prior to attending FSA.
New students must meet all admission criteria and have received an official admission notification of acceptance before consideration of a request for financial assistance for the upcoming school year.
FSAPS Financial Aid Application must be completed online through Blackbaud Financial Aid. The link to the FSA Blackbaud Aid Application form is located below.
FSA considers tuition the responsibility of both parents. Accordingly, both parents must complete a Financial Aid application and provide required documents.
All necessary tax records and supplemental documentation indicated in FSAPS Financial Aid Application must be provided to Blackbaud Financial Aid.
The completion of the financial assistance application is not a binding agreement that assistance is available or will be granted.
The Financial Aid Committee convenes in mid April to review the requests and determine if a financial assistance award will be granted, and what amount the award may be.
The Financial Assistance Committee will determine the amount of the award based on the amount of available funds, the number of applicants requesting assistance, and the need demonstrated by the applicant’s family.
FSAPS admission office will distribute, process, and maintain the records for all financial assistance materials. Communication between the applicant’s family and other FSAPS staff regarding financial assistance awards is prohibited.
ASP financial assistance awards can range from $1 to a maximum award of $12,140 tuition assistance per year to any one student through the ASP funds. The award cap is adjusted each year by the state of Georgia. Any award amount will be applied to the tuition for the academic year it is awarded, and the remaining tuition due will be divided into monthly payments from May to January.
ASP recipients must re-apply each year and prove eligibility to receive financial assistance each year through financial aid application and tax record evaluations. ASP assistance awards are not guaranteed to be given yearly, nor are the same amounts guaranteed to be given.
If an ASP assistance recipient withdraws, the ASP funds are reallocated to the ASP fund to be distributed at the discretion of the Financial Assistance Committee to another qualified applicant.
