Mission & Values

The mission of Whitefield Academy is to equip students to be Christ-honoring critical thinkers, clear communicators, and compassionate leaders, through the pursuit of academic excellence, in the tradition of classical Christian education.

Our History

Whitefield Academy began in 1995 by a group of families looking to educate their children with an emphasis on developing critical thinking and communication skills, taught from a Christian worldview.

Our founders were dedicated to the proposition that an understanding of who God is and who we are in relation to Him is the foundation of all knowledge. Over the past thirty years, the Lord has faithfully guided our school and Whitefield Academy has grown to become Kansas City's leading classical Christian school, serving students in Kinder Prep through 12th grade across the metro area.

Reading the Bible

We Believe...

  • The Bible to be the only inerrant, authoritative word of God
  • That there is one totally sovereign God, eternally existent in three Persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  • In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory
  • That for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary
  • That salvation is by grace through faith alone
  • That faith without works is dead
  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit whose indwelling at the moment of salvation enables the Christian to live a godly life
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved to the resurrection of life and they that are lost to the resurrection of judgement
  • In the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ

Whitefield has the solid feel of an institution standing firm on truth that will not be easily swayed or quick to bend to secular culture.

 I consider it a blessing to worship among other traditions that teach the same Scriptures and preach the same gospel.
