Georgia Tax Credit

We are fortunate in the state of Georgia that our tax dollars can be used to support tuition costs for those attending Georgia independent schools.  We appreciate our legislators for this tax benefit in support of a private education choice and thank the donors who select Oak Mountain Academy as the recipient of their tax credit donation.
