George Walton Academy
- George Walton Academy was founded in 1969 by parents and community leaders looking for a strong, college preparatory, private school with Judeo-Christian values.
- The Academy is interested in the development and well being of the total child as a person, scholar, citizen and athlete.
- We believe that each child is different, but we have high expectations for all our students and expect that they will put forth their best efforts at all times.
- The Academy emphasizes the importance of good manners, concerns for the rights of others and proper conduct.
- We believe that a school setting with small classes, competent and caring teachers, and a strong college preparatory curriculum which stresses excellence, intellectual challenge, student responsibility, and hard work creates a confident young person ready for the adult world.
