Virginia Tax Credit Program

A private education is no longer out of reach for many Virginia families thanks to The Education Improvement Scholarships Tax Credits Program (EISTCP), also known as the Virginia tax credit program. Hargrave Military Academy is an approved participant in this program which may help offset some of the costs of attending Hargrave for many families.

The Virginia tax credit program is available to families that qualify based on the following criteria:

  • Virginia is the family's state of residence
  • The student was previously enrolled in a public school or was qualified in the previous term for the Virginia tax credit program
  • The family meets the financial need qualifications set by the Commonwealth of Virginia (varies based on location)

If you believe that your family may qualify for the Virginia tax credit program please inquire with the admissions office for more details. Individual awards are based on family income and location, and may serve as a substantial contribution towards your son's tuition.

If you are looking for a quality, private education for your son, or if your son is not reaching his full potential, Hargrave is the answer. Give us a call and see if you qualify, 800-432-2480.
