The Abby Hendrix Memorial Scholarship

The Abby Hendrix Memorial Scholarship is a need-based financial award intended to support a Bulloch Academy 2nd-5th grade student currently enrolled in the school. “On January 18, 2017, a big piece of our class was taken from us entirely too soon,” said Bryan Boykin, 2019 senior class treasurer, “Abby Layne Hendrix could light up the world with her smile and love for others. On that Wednesday we all lost a playground playmate, a dance partner, and a forever friend.” In honor of their friend, the Bulloch Academy Class of 2019’s “senior gift” was the establishment of the Abby Hendrix Memorial Scholarship. “We hope that the following senior classes will continue to contribute to this scholarship and make this an ongoing Memorial for our sweet friend,” said Boykin.

Georgia GOAL Scholarship

The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program is a state-approved student scholarship organization (SSO) that uses tax-credit contributions to fund partial scholarships for public-school students who desire to attend private schools or for students entering kindergarten. The partial scholarships, which do not exceed 50 percent of a student’s total tuition at Bulloch Academy, are based on family income, household size, and demonstrated need. The program helps the school grow by bringing in new students and families, bringing in new resources, and helping to stabilize tuition and other fees for existing families.

What students are eligible under the law to receive financial assistance from the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program? As the 2008 legislation (House Bill 1133) indicates, eligible students include those who are “Georgia residents enrolled in a Georgia secondary or primary public school or eligible to enroll in a qualified kindergarten or pre-kindergarten program.”

At Bulloch Academy, only students entering kindergarten through the ninth grade (first semester) are eligible for the GOAL Scholarship Program. For more information, please contact Morgan Conner at [email protected] or 912-764-0707. The application deadline is May 2, 2022, and we ask that you please read the application CAREFULLY before submitting as there have been some changes made.
