For nearly 30 years, Whitefield has been Kansas City's leading classical Christian school.

Whitefield Academy is a Christ-centered community of classical learning. We are located near the state line, drawing 230 students from across the metro area. As an independent, 5 day, in-person, non-denominational Christian school we are accredited by The Association of Classical Christian Schools. Our aim is to graduate students who are Christ-honoring critical thinkers, clear communicators, and compassionate leaders.  We invite you to explore our website and then schedule a campus visit to learn more!

Why Whitefield Academy?

The educational environment your child experiences during their school-aged years can have a profound an impact on who they are when they step out into college and adulthood.

Why Christian Private School?

Parents choose private education for many reasons. Some value the close-knit community or the individual attention of smaller classes. Some value the academic rigor or the partnership with teachers who are subject matter experts. Others appreciate that the faith and values taught at home are reinforced in the classroom, or that their children develop positive peer relationships with supportive classmates.  

Whatever matters most to you, you'll be glad you scheduled a tour of Whitefield Academy.

Whitefield Family

When we enrolled our oldest child at Whitefield Academy in Kindergarten, we were thrilled about the prospect of a top-notch education and a school environment that would reinforce the Christian values we teach in our home. 

We are grateful for the way teachers and staff pour God’s love into our children, challenging and nurturing them to grow in knowledge and virtue, and walk with us as we prepare them for the challenges of the world. When we attend chapel and school-wide events, and hear our kids burst into joyful hymns and recite scripture and poetry at home, we are reminded of the true gift of Whitefield.
