    Opening the doors to Catholic Education begins with you!

    On January 1, 2020, Academics+ became the official Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) for the Archdiocese of Mobile Catholic schools. Named to reflect that our schools offer education plus faith, this new SGO strives to open the door to Catholic education for families who reside in failing school districts and for those whose family income falls within state determined guidelines.

    Academics+ is a parent-driven model. Parents complete an online application and mail in supporting documents to apply.  Scholarships are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to students zoned to attend a “failing” public school.

    Academics+ is leading the way statewide to provide low-income children the educational opportunities to be successful and to have a productive future.  If you pay personal or business income taxes to the State of Alabama, you can donate up to 50% of your income tax liability to fund scholarships for children who wish to attend a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Mobile
