G.R.A.C.E. Scholars, Inc., is the official student scholarship organization (SSO) for the schools sponsored by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta. All students receiving G.R.A.C.E. Awards have demonstrated financial need as determined by a third-party analysis of a family's ability to pay tuition.
Schools in the Archdiocese of Atlanta reserve the right to decline funding from SSOs that do not award scholarships based on financial need. In addition, the maximum amount of SSO scholarships awarded to students in the Archdiocesan schools is the lowest of the following: students calculated financial need; 80% of the tuition rate applicable to the student; an index of per-pupil public school spending in Georgia; and the maximum cap established by the local school.
G.R.A.C.E. Scholars, Inc. welcomes the transfer of funding from one SSO to another as allowed by state law. In these instances, the school reserves the right to award G.R.A.C.E. scholarships in accordance with local procedures.
