Lower School Media Center

The Lower School Media Center is a vital extension of the classroom where resources are readily available to enhance and enrich student learning. Through the integration of technology, we supplement curriculum and reinforce classroom skills and lessons. Our goal is to foster an interest and enjoyment of reading for both pleasure and information while educating students to be self-sufficient learners.

Monday – Friday: 7:30 AM to 3:15 PM

The mission of the George Walton Academy Media Center is to create an environment that encourages intellectual stimulation, provides access to quality information, and offers enrichment to the school community it serves.


The Lower School Media Center is centrally located on the school’s campus. The facility offers tables and study carrels for group or individual study, and there are 10 computers freely available to students throughout the day. A recent addition of a LCD projector enables us to provide small group instruction by accessing video and internet streaming as needed to further supplement curriculum.


The Lower School Media Center inventory houses over 14,000 items in its collection. Students also have access to educator-approved databases to aid in the research process.
