Whitefield Academy Reviews

Whitefield Academy has blown my expectations out of the water. The academic focus, intent on teaching the whole child, and intensity of God's love is profound. My children are being nourished in their mind, body, and spirit through intentional lesson planning, instruction, and communication. I could not be more happy with the education they are receiving.

We had our children in a public school prior to Whitefield. They were results oriented (state testing) and one of my boys cried everyday going, and hated being at school. The classrooms were large and he often felt lost.

We have the opposite at Whitefield. The classes are smaller and the attention is on the Lord and the academics are so well rounded. There is no pressure of state testing and constant high stakes assessments.

I cannot thank Whitefield enough for the education it has given my boys!

This is an amazing school with an outstanding community! If you want a place where not only your child will grow mentally but also spiritually this is the place to go. A learning experience with a close relationship to each and every one of your fellow peers and teachers. You are taught how to critically read, speak and think with a purpose. Although this school is small and my class consists of only 13 students, I do not consider it as a disadvantage but very much the latter. The relationships made here are something much deeper and connective than any other. You may see may see this place as a small classical christian school, but I see it as one family, one community, brothers and sisters in Christ all pushing each other to the best we know each and everyone of us can be. So why should you send you child here? Well I believe that the things at this school are something you can't experience at most schools and is so desperately needed in each and every school.
We have been a part of the Whitefield community for 8 years. I have had many other private school experiences and my experience as a parent with 3 children attending this school as been exceptional. My children receive a quality, classical education from teachers who really care and an administration that is constantly looking to improve the school in every area. It is a tight knit community of involved parents and students. Each year our community grows and the school is able to offer even more options and services. Worth every penny!
