Student Life

Academic Enrichment Center


The Academic Enrichment Center (AEC) serves students across all grade levels and provides a key element in fulfilling the mission of the school. The AEC “bolsters Christian families” by offering services in the form of professional tutoring, peer tutoring, and development of support networks for students. AEC director Eden Gulledge helps students fuel their “passion for learning” by equipping these students to excel in Whitefield’s challenging college-preparatory environment. The peer tutoring program offers students an opportunity to place “others ahead of self” as they mentor a fellow classmate or younger student, sharing their God-given talents with the community. It is within this environment of support and encouragement that students are able to honor “the living and active Jesus” as they achieve academic success.

AEC services include:

  • Peer tutoring
  • Professional tutoring
  • Executive functioning support
  • Reading and writing coaching
  • Semester exam preparation
  • Remote learning support
  • Coordination of standardized testing including the PSAT, PreACT, OLSAT, CTP5, and AP exams
