School History & Culture
George Washington Academy celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2017-2018. Since its founding, GWA has served the metropolitan area of Casablanca, Morocco with a preschool through 12th Grade education grounded solidly in 21st Century American pedagogy and built around a multilingual program. GWA students come from Morocco, the United States, and more than three dozen other countries in the Americas, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Likewise, GWA’s faculty represent a mix of expat and Moroccan educators, with all classes taught in the native language of the teachers teaching them. While most students come from international business and upper-middle to upper class families, GWA’s financial assistance program helps foster socioeconomic diversity in the student population.
