Christina Walker is a 12 year-old student-athlete from just outside of Atlanta, Georgia and she desperately needs tuition assistance. During her 6th grade year in private school, Christina accumulated a 4.0 GPA, served as a 6th Grade Advisory Representative, made the School President’s List both semesters and again received President Barack Obama's Award for Academic Excellence. Christina’s scholastic achievements in 2013-14 were made possible because she earned a Georgia Goal Scholarship that provided her the opportunity to transition from public school to private school. The average Georgia Goal Scholarship awarded for students at her private school in 2013-14 was $2,638. Tuition for 2014-15 is $10,438.00.
“It was quite interesting switching to a different curriculum from public school to private school. I adapted very well both socially and academically. My lowest grade was a 91 in Accelerated Math. Overall though, I was very happy with what I accomplished in my first year at ELCA”.
