Whitefield Academy Reviews

We absolutely love Whitefield Academy. We have a daughter in Kindergarten; she also attended Pre-K at Whitefield last year. The kindergarten class has 20 students in it, 13 returning from Pre-K. There is one main teacher who is amazing and then a second helper teacher who is also amazing. This is the perfect size to insure that our daughter gets specialized attention in all academic areas. In kindergarten, students are moving toward reading so they are learning to write in cursive as well as learning phonograms. Whitefield hasn't jumped on the bandwagon of "sight words." Instead, they teach phonograms, the sounds that letters and letter combinations make in different circumstances. This teaches students the building blocks of words instead of simply having them memorize 200 words. Students are also learning addition and subtraction, memorizing scripture, and attending art class, library, gym and music.

I have gone to Whitefield since first grade, and I can honestly say it is the most incredible place that someone could ever experience. Throughout elementary and upper school, you feel how small the physical school is, but you also feel the tightly woven community around you supporting your success in academics and extra curricular activities. It is a great place to learn classical education in a Christian environment.
I love the Christian Atmosphere that I get to learn in and the style of learning that they provide is interesting and more than just studies. My favorite thing about the school is the teachers and how they develop relationships with each students. The only downfall to me is that the sports, clubs, and electives are limited, especially in the field of music for the upper school. Mostly due to size and money, but more variety and attention in those categories would make the school even better than it is already.
