George Washington Academy is open to all Utah students, regardless of race, creed, color, religion, gender, national origin, or ability/disability status. Acceptance to GWA is based on the following criteria:

  • First preference is given to students currently attending George Washington Academy who plan to return for the next academic year and children of faculty, staff, and founding families of GWA.
  • Second preference is given to siblings of current GWA attendees.
  • Remaining applicants will be accepted to GWA on a space-available basis.

The names of students not eligible via the first two criteria will be entered into a lottery, with the drawing held in February. Once all classes have been filled, the remaining names will be placed on the GWA waitlist in the order drawn. If an accepted student decides not to attend GWA or leaves the school during the year, their position will be offered to the next waitlisted student for that grade level.

New students accepted to GWA must complete and return their online registration packets. Those not meeting the deadline may lose their spot in the classroom, which will then be offered to the next student on the waitlist.
