My husband and I wanted our children to grow up in an environment that reinforced what was being taught at home and church. Our decision to apply to Whitefield was based on the student-teacher ratio; the arts and athletic programs; and the strong academic college-prep curriculum. With Whitefield being a covenantal Christian school we knew this was the BEST school for our family. During our children’s attendance, Whitefield taught our children to put Christ at the center of everything. The school is not an "in-your-face, Bible scripture dropping" environment. The faculty encourages the student to reflect the word of God in THOUGHTS and ACTIONS. The academic rigor of the curriculum prepared both of our children. Our daughter has a Masters in Nursing and works as a Pediatric ICU nurse and our son will be attending Georgia Tech. Whitefield provided everything we were looking for in a school and MORE! As parents, we feel the true value of the education our children received is priceless.

They call us "lifers", those of us who've been at Whitefield since kindergarden. For me, it's been all good! I love the people, the teachers, the campus facilities and student life. Whether you're into sports, like me, or the arts or straight academics, Whitefield has a place for you. It's a Christian school, but of course that doesn't make Whitefield perfect. We have our share of the "bad" stuff too, but at some level everyone there knows help is there for the asking. That makes us feel safe. That makes Whitefield great!
Whitefield has been great for my children. The lower school has superb academics and learning isn't limited to rote memorization. Learning is hands on, creative, and memorable. The teachers are supportive and form a relationship not only with my children, but with my husband and me as well. There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer and connect with one another. We were delighted with how easy it was to make the school feel like our own. Another huge benefit - we NEVER have to go through the admissions process again until our children go to college. We are very happy with our school choice!
