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!
We believe the end of all learning is to know, love, and imitate God.
Our classical curriculum teaches students how to think rather than what to think.
Students can be themselves and develop supportive friendships for life.
We believe that who they become and how they interact with others is just as important as what they know.
Students enjoy historical and school traditions that unify our community through shared experience.
Our teachers get to know each student as an individual, developing their whole person.
Students have multiple recess periods, play in the snow, go on walks, and enjoy learning outside.
KPrep - 6th learns screen free while 7th-12th learns essential technology skills - but mostly, we read books!
Students discover new interests with sculpture, theater, choral music, rowing, debate and more.
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.
