Georgia Private School Accreditation Council
The Georgia Private School Accreditation Council (GAPSAC) is an association of private schools (grades K through 12) whose students are recognized and approved by the Georgia Department of Education for purposes of transferring credits to public schools on the same basis as students from one public school to another. According to Rule 160-5-1-.15 of the Department of Education in relation to transfer of credits, no additional testing or any type of requirements over and above those for students from public schools will be made for students from GAPSAC schools.
Also, the Georgia Board of Regents recognizes graduates of GAPSAC schools for college entrance to any institution of the University System of Georgia on the same basis as graduates from public schools.
The Hope Scholarship Program of the Georgia Student Finance Authority recognizes graduates of all schools fully or provisionally accredited under GAPSAC to be eligible for Hope Scholarships on the same basis as graduates of Georgia public schools.
GAPSAC does NOT have information on non-member private schools or any post-secondary schools. For questions about GAPSAC call: (706) 629-7951.
