For nearly 30 years, our Christ-centered classical approach to education has cultivated character and inspired a love of learning in Kindergarten Prep through 12th grade students across Kansas City.
Whitefield's exceptional education will prepare your children for success in any future path they choose, but more importantly, it will prepare them to love Christ and live well in community with others.
The renewal of classical education is not a nostalgic return to the past–
it’s a recovery of those ideas and methods that have always created the future.

Making wise judgements
Influencing our communities
For the good of our neighbor
Whitefield caught our eye because it was a top-tier academic institution, a classical education, and a distinctly Christian one. A year later, we couldn’t be happier that we chose Whitefield. It stands apart as a truly special place, offering an environment where our kids are challenged while constantly being reminded of God’s love for them.
One of the things that sets Whitefield apart is how they believe children can learn difficult things but they also celebrate and protect childhood. The kids work hard academically but they play, they laugh, they are allowed to be kids!
What we have seen in our children, especially since graduating, is an incredible depth of understanding of God, His Kingdom, and His world; a breadth of knowledge in so many diverse subjects; and ability to communicate effortlessly with anyone about anything.
