Why Whitefield
I was drawn to Whitefield by the intentional focus on a Christ-centered education process and the environment in which it's pursued. Investigating the deep things of God can be intimidating enough without a nurturing environment to wrestle with those issues. The strong emphasis on care and mentoring at Whitefield, I believe, is an ideal atmosphere for digging deeper into the truths contained in Scripture and revealed in biblical theology.
