Institutional Priorities

List of 6 items.

  • Landmark Fund

    Every family is expected to give to this important annual appeal that officially runs from August 1 to May 31. Donors may give without being asked, and do so for any purpose although we present our highest annual priorities. Every gift -- of any size – will have an impact!  

    To help you make an informed choice, Landmark will offer a new list of specific projects each school year that enhance the student experience in ways not paid for using tuition. For example, your gifts will help to fund cutting-edge tools, technology, and equipment for classrooms, as well as innovative programs like middle and high school Advisories, elementary STEM, TED, and SPOTLIGHT. Gifts will also be used to fund need-based financial aid, and classroom enhancement and professional development allowances for teachers.

  • Capital Projects

    From time to time Landmark will ask its community to consider giving over and above their regular annual support of the Landmark Fund, for “bricks and mortar” projects.   Usually, this includes new or renovated academic, art, or athletics facilities.  For example, phase one of the IT’S TIME Campaign was launched in 2019, to raise support for several physical improvements to campus including a new high school academic building. Once the high school building is complete the campaign will continue with subsequent phases, to address strategic priorities. Those will focus on additional building projects identified by the school’s master campus plan. For more information, please contact our Senior Director of Giving and Alumni Relations, Martin J. Riggs IAP at or by phone at 770-692-6758.

  • Faculty Support

    Talented faculty and staff are at the heart of Landmark Christian School.  They inspire curiosity and are committed to helping every student grow. For Landmark to recruit, retain, and support such extraordinarily talented educators, the significant financial investment is a necessity. Donors who wish to support great teaching and coaching give to the school for this reason so that the Head of School can offer various incentives that reward excellence in teaching, and professional development.
    For more information about gifts to faculty support, please contact Senior Director of Giving and Alumni Relations, Marty Riggs at
  • Financial Aid

    Believing that private, Christian independent schooling is best, and striving for economic inclusivity, Landmark Christian offers partial, need-based tuition assistance to qualified families many of whom have been impacted by COVID-19 circumstances. The students would not be part of the Landmark community otherwise.  The awarding process is measured and careful, but need often outstrips available resources.  The need-based tuition assistance program helps approximately 30% of the student body or 275 students.

  • Program Support

    Interested donors can demonstrate charitable support for specific student programs at Landmark which they find valuable. This might include programs such as the Aviation, Engineering, Film, or Music Academies, elementary STEM, an arts program or perhaps an athletic team. Gifts may be used for teaching tools and technology, or other critical resources sought by a program. There are many from which to choose.

    Our School Helps Students Find Ways to Fund Their Education

    At Landmark Christian School, we want to do our part to help students fund their education. We understand that many students require financial assistance to pay their educational expenses, which is why we do our part to bring as many financial aid opportunities to our students as possible. One program we are proud to be a part of is the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, which funds scholarships for students attending private schools while giving taxpayers a useful state tax credit. If you would like additional information about how you can help fund GOAL scholarships for students at Landmark Christian School, please reach out to ustoday. We’ve also provided additional information on this page.

    What is the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program?

    The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program is a non-profit organization, which was established to help students enrolled in accredited private schools. The program allows taxpayers to redirect a portion of their state income tax liability to improve pre-K through 12th-grade educational opportunities in Georgia. In 2019, 12,500 Georgians participated in the GOAL Scholarship Program, contributing 37.4 million dollars. Due to this high involvement by our state taxpayers, GOAL was able to provide outstanding K-12 opportunities to 16,823 students. Taxpayers who contribute to the program are eligible for the Georgia Qualified Education Expense Credit.

    Who Can Contribute to the GOAL Scholarship Program?

    Taxpayers throughout the state can contribute to the GOAL Scholarship Program, including individuals and businesses. There is a $100 million limitation to the tax credits given out each year through this program, which means private school communities across the state are competing for these precious funds to help their students. We encourage your participation in the program, which will help us claim a healthy share for our community. Together, we can raise the bar for Landmark Christian School. You can contribute to the program based on the following tax filing statuses:
    • Single Individual or Head of Household: May contribute any amount up to $1,000
    • Married Couple Filing a Joint Return: May contribute any amount up to $2,500
    • Married Couple Filing a Separate Return: May contribute any amount up to $1,250
    • S Corporation Shareholder, LLC Member, or Partnership Partner: May contribute any amount up to $10,000
    • C Corporation or Trust: May contribute any amount up to 75% of annual Georgia income tax liability

    How Is It Decided Where Contributed Funds Will Go?

    The best part about contributing to the GOAL Scholarship Program is that you may direct your funds to Landmark Christian School, a GOAL participating partner.

    What Type of Tax Credit do Participants Receive?

    Taxpayers who contribute to the GOAL Scholarship Program receive a Georgia income tax credit instead of a mere tax deduction. A tax credit reduces the amount of tax you owe, which gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction on your tax liability. On the other hand, a tax deduction only reduces the amount of your income that is subject to taxes. This means the tax credit you receive from donating to the GOAL program, known as the Georgia Qualified Education Expense Credit, could significantly reduce the taxes you owe to the state. For example, if you plan on paying $5000 to the state of Georgia for income taxes in 2021, you may instead redirect a portion to a scholarship fund at Landmark. If you are married filing taxes jointly, you could redirect $2500 to GOAL and $2500 to the Georgia Department of Revenue.

Our goal is to promote donations to this program in order to help as many of our students as possible. Together, we can make education more accessible to students from all backgrounds. All it takes is support from you.
