Welcome to Whitefield Academy!
I am elated and honored to serve as the headmaster of Whitefield Academy. I am confident that Whitefield’s success will advance because the Lord, Jesus
Christ, has always led this school. Whitefield continues to send young people into the world equipped with a unique integration of traits that differentiates

look and to experience the Christ-centered, family atmosphere that permeates Whitefield Academy!
