Whitefield’s Middle School serves students in grades five through eight with outstanding faculty, a strong curriculum and extracurricular program, and
a tradition of building maturity and responsibility.
Students prepare for high school and beyond by gaining experience in leadership roles, collaborating with peers, and being mentored by Christian faculty,
coaches, and staff members.
Whitefield also partners with Christian families to guide students’ social and spiritual development through the often difficult adolescent years. One
program, Secret Supporters, encourages sixth and
seventh graders to establish a norm of building others up rather than tearing them down. Eighth grade girls participate in a Wednesday morning club called
Girl Talk, as female students from the Upper
School assist younger peers by sharing how they dealt with adolescent challenges. Eighth graders also participate in the StoneWorks program, in which
speakers connect with students about integrity, self-control,
reliability, and purity. The annual Middle School carnival, fifth and sixth grade game night, seventh and eighth grade dance, field trips, and retreats
create a positive environment that balances a rigorous,
challenging academic program.
