George Walton Academy (GWA) is a private school in Monroe, Georgia, United States. It enrolls students in K4-12th grade. The school is named for Senator George Walton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
George Walton Academy was founded in 1969 by members of the local community who wanted to provide a college preparatory education for white students. Initially, the school was located in Good Hope, Georgia. In 1975, the school moved from Good Hope to Monroe. The new campus sat on 21 acres (85,000 m2) of land. Since then, the school has expanded to 60 acres (240,000 m2).
