The Foundation of a GWA Education
A challenging academic program lies at the heart of what we do.
We challenge you to find a school in the surrounding area that can match our students’ academic outcomes, level of college preparedness, and the confidence and poise that comes with intensive scholastic study in a variety of content areas. What does the George Walton Academy graduate look like? Take a look.
A Complete Picture of Success
From the core subjects to our wide array of elective offerings, George Walton Academy’s approach to academics aims to equip each student with the tools for success.
We realize that success comes in many forms, and that’s why academic rigor is just the beginning.
Alongside a strong and innovative curriculum, we instill academic soft skills – time management, self-advocacy, effective study habits and self-discipline (to name a few) – that will help students meet and exceed their goals.
We’re constantly evaluating our methods, technology and programs in order to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing environment. Our objective is not to prepare students to face the world of today, but to thrive in the unknowns of the future. Flexibility, adaptability and self-evaluation are key in this endeavor.
Moreover, at GWA, every student belongs.
Our small class sizes offer increased individual attention; teachers have the opportunity to get to know their students, and they’re able to uncover the talents and individual gifts that make each child unique.
Whether your child desires a college experience close to home or aspires to the Ivy League, we have a dedicated teacher base to help every student achieve his or her goals and dreams.
