A Christ-Centered College Preparatory School

The Class of 2021 includes 64 seniors who have individually and collectively demonstrated a passion for learning, for others ahead of self, and for the living and active Jesus. Guided by their selection of 1 Peter 3:8 as the 2020-2021 school verse, the Class of 2021 seeks to have "unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind," and they have been encouraged by countless family members, friends, teachers, coaches, and mentors. The Class of 2021 submitted 465 college applications and earned 293 acceptances to 138 different colleges in 34 states. They will attend 43 unique colleges and have been awarded $9.36 million in college scholarships not including the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarships. Fifteen students have attended Whitefield since 2008, and seven students will be collegiate athletes on cheerleading, football, soccer, and tennis teams. We are excited to recognize, celebrate, and honor this incredible class, and we look forward to seeing how God will use them in their next chapters.
