George Walton Academy is located at One Bulldog Drive in Monroe, Georgia, about 40 miles east of downtown Atlanta.
During the school year, we’re open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., excluding school holidays and breaks. Summer hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. GWA is closed during the week of July 4.
The school's main entrance is located off West Spring Street. If you're visiting campus during school hours, please park in visitor parking directly across from our front office and stop in for a visitor's pass. All main campus buildings as well as the football, softball and soccer fields are easily accessible using this entrance.
We also have a back entrance on Michael Etchison Road that might be more convenient for after-hours activities on campus. Student parking as well as access to the Nicholson Center, field house, tennis courts, baseball field and track are located adjacent to this entrance. However, GWA's back entrance is closed daily from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. If you're visiting campus during these hours, please use our main entrance and check in at the front office.
