While modern education trains students for a job, classical Christian education trains students how to learn and cultivates what they love.
Classical education systematically gives students the foundational tools of learning, enabling them to synthesize information, creatively solve problems, and readily adapt to change. They are well prepared for higher learning in any area of interest with the ability to think well and communicate effectively.
Whitefield is not only classical, but Christ-centered. We believe that the true aim of education is to cultivate the whole person and order their affections to love what is true, good, and beautiful - namely Christ Himself.
Cultivating love of God and Christ-like character
Cultivating lifelong learners that think deeply.
Cultivating creative expression to glorify God
Cultivating healthy living through movement
Making wise judgements
Influencing our communities
For the good of our neighbor
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.
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!
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.
