Virtues & Faith
Whitefield's classical approach cultivates love of God and Christ-like character.
At Whitefield everything we learn points students to Christ. Our teachers model genuine faith, mentoring and praying for each student as a valued part of our community and a unique individual made in the image of God.
Whether it's Kinder Prep memorizing a verse for each phonogram or 3rd grade memorizing entire chapters of Matthew, we seek to read, understand and memorize the Bible at Whitefield. Beyond Bible class itself, teachers point students to Christ in every area of study.
Upper school begins each day in community worship, reading scripture, singing together, being exhorted by a faculty member, and praying. Lower school joins chapel on Tuesdays and parents are always welcome to attend.
Talking with God is a regular rhythm at Whitefield. Teachers model genuine hearts of faith, praying for and with students daily.
"At Whitefield, when teachers pray, they really mean it." -Lower School Student
