Whitefield Academy seeks motivated students who have achieved academic success and exhibit excellent conduct. Whitefield takes a holistic approach in determining admission and considers all components of the admissions application, including academic performance, testing, teacher evaluations, interviews or observations, and extracurricular interests and talents. As a Christ-centered, covenant school, we require that at least one parent/guardian profess faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
