GWA Tech Club
Tech Club has the intention of facilitating the integration of technology in our daily academic life. Its members are passionately and actively involved in improving the use of technology in their classes and on campus. Besides training members to be responsible, punctual and professional at all they do, the Tech Club provides real life opportunities to solve technology problems through both teamwork and cooperation with fellow students from other clubs. Through weekly club meetings, presentations and field trips, the club also promotes a better understanding of computing and information technology on and off campus.

STELOS: Students Teaching English Learners On Saturdays
STELOS allows the children and other young relatives of George Washington Academy employees to come to GWA monthly on Saturdays to learn English. The best part about STELOS: GWA students volunteer their time to help the children learn English and, more importantly, to make new friends from a different community. STELOS gives GWA students the opportunity to show compassion, excellence, integrity and cooperation.
Sara Hutson, a kindergarten teacher at GWA, started STELOS in October, 2016. The hard work of GWA’s housekeepers and bus drivers inspired her to give back to their community. It started with just eight children, but since then has grown to up to twenty children coming to learn English every Saturday, with GWA students using their Darija and soccer skills to connect with the staff’s children.
GWA students in Third Grade or above can volunteer with STELOS on Saturdays at GWA in the Library from 9 AM-1 PM. High School students can earn CASA service hours for their time with STELOS.
