"Jacob had always done well in school, but he was not being stimulated intellectually and was bored much of the time. At R-MA, not only were the academics challenging, but he had opportunity to explore all types of activities including sports, music, and flying – all of which are now his passions. R-MA’s Christian morals and Air Force core values have shaped Jacob into a mature young man motivated and prepared to succeed in college and beyond."
-Art & Mary Gehly, parents of Jacob '20
Note: The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has expanded the use of 529 Plans.
Starting in 2018, the tax reform bill passed by Congress allows a family to use up to $10,000 in proceeds per student, per year to pay for the cost of tuition and books at a public, private or religious elementary and high school.
Since the plans differ in each state, parents should consult their state's fund and their financial planner regarding the policies and procedures for funding independent school education.
For more information on 529 Plans, view read this article from US News or view the fact sheet created by The American Federation for Children, EdChoice, and ExcelinEd.
