36 Ala. Private Schools Sign Up for Tax Credit Law

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

So far, 36 private schools have signed up to participate in Alabama's new private school tax credit program with less than two weeks to go before most schools start classes.

The state Revenue Department says the 36 schools range from Pope John Paul II Catholic High School in Huntsville to McGill-Toolen Catholic High School in Mobile.

Alabama's new Accountability Act provides state tax credits to parents who move their children from failing public schools to participating private schools.

The Revenue Department has a public hearing Thursday in Montgomery on its proposed rules for implementing the Accountability Act.

The primary architect of the tax credits, Republican Sen. Del Marsh of Anniston, says Republican legislative leaders are discussing whether they need to make changes to the law in the next legislative session.

The Alabama Department of Revenue said the private schools that have signed up so far to participate in the tax credits portion of the Alabama Accountability Act are:

Country Day School in Madison, Resurrection Catholic School in Montgomery, The Capitol School in Tuscaloosa, Chamber Academy in Lafayette, Holy Spirit Catholic School in Tuscaloosa, Ellwood Christian Academy in Selma, Trinity Christian Academy in Oxford, St. Jude Educational Institute in Montgomery, McGill-Toolen Catholic High School in Mobile, Conecuh Springs Christian School in Union Springs, Little Flower Catholic School in Mobile, Abbeville Christian Academy in Abbeville, St. Mary Catholic Church in Mobile, Cornerstone Schools of Alabama in Birmingham, St. Vincents De Paul Catholic School in Mobile, St. Dominic Catholic School in Mobile,
