Since its inception in 1997, the GWA Marching Bulldog Band has always strived to perform at the highest levels of excellence and innovation for today’s marching bands. Our students have had the opportunity in recent years to represent our school at several venues throughout the southeast and have been honored to walk away with many great performances and recognition.

Over a short period of time, the Marching Bulldog Band has grown from 20 to 85 members. The band fields students from seventh-12th grade and competes in multiple competitions each year during the fall. Students work diligently three days a week from August to November to put together a performance that highlights our philosophy of leadership, intense effort, character building, and teamwork. GWA works year-round on training our student leadership and we design a retreat every summer to help train the new team for each year. Our student leadership is very involved in every aspect of the band program and we expect a lot from them. We feel that they also get a lot in return for their efforts and sacrifices.
