Education and engagement in the fine arts are essential parts of the school curriculum and important components in the educational program of every student at George Walton Academy. 

Sufficient data exists to overwhelmingly support the belief that study and participation in the fine arts are key components in improving learning throughout all academic areas. Evidence of effectiveness in raising student attendance, developing better team players, fostering a love for learning, improving greater student dignity, and enhancing student creativity exists in participants in fine arts programs.

The fine arts also provide students with non-academic benefits such as promoting self-esteem, motivation, aesthetic awareness, cultural exposure, creativity, improved emotional expression, as well as social harmony and appreciation of diversity.
