Wynnton Arts Academy is the first fine arts Charter School in Georgia. All students receive daily instruction in drama, art, music, and dance. Arts integration and STEAM activities are integral components of our program and support student achievement across the curriculum. Content and skills from the fine arts are integrated with core subject curriculum providing students additional avenues through which they can enhance their academic, emotional, physical, and social skills. The Arts promote self-discipline, creativity, and the confidence to succeed.
The Tradition of Excellence
Wynnton Academy was established in 1837, and the original building was built in 1843. That original building, standing in the center of the campus, is still in use today as a museum. Wynnton is in the national Historic Registry as the oldest building in continual use as a school in the State of Georgia and is possibly the second oldest in the nation still in use. There is evidence of our history everywhere in the building. You will find antique furniture, books, and pictures along with memorabilia such as brass bells, trophies, scrapbooks, and May Day costumes. The school is also home to a collection of original art work on display in the foyer and in the museum. All of it the works of area artists, many of whom were alumni of Wynnton.
Wynnton Arts Academy has a long history of excellence that continues today. We invite you to join in this pursuit of excellence as we continue into our 175th year of teaching and learning on this historic campus.
