Student Life

Whitefield Academy commits to creating a Christ-centered, supportive community for students by offering a variety of opportunities to expand interests, knowledge, and friendships. These experiences broaden students’ horizons and foster an environment that allows them to attempt new feats and improve existing skills.

Dozens of clubs and projects provide interesting experiences for students starting in our earliest grades. Each Lower School grade participates in a community service project during the year, while Middle School and Upper School students participate in mentoring programsand school-wide service projects. At Whitefield, students may pursue new interests, develop their God-given talents, and understand the importance of building relationships with those outside their community.
