Strong Classical Academic Foundation

Our Christ-centered classical curriculum gives children an essential foundation in phonics, literacy, mathematics, and cursive handwriting. You'll be amazed what they can learn and feel confident they are prepared for the grades ahead.

Caring Teachers

Our teachers create a joyful environment where students feel known and cared for.  We care about academics, but also social, spiritual, and emotional growth. Your children will have a routine, understand what is expected of them while still having room to move, have fun, and be a kid!

Screen-Free, Hands-On Learning

Children who learn without screens are happier and develop longer attention spans. Your children will be surrounded by books, art, music, and movement that inspires them to love learning and explore the world around them.

Ample Recess & Movement

Active kids do better in school. Your children will go on field trips, play outside two or three times each day and have regular PE classes. When it snows, they won't sit inside watching movies, they'll be out building snowmen and making memories!

Cultivating Christ-Like Character

Who children become and how they interact with others is as important as what they know. Our programs have just enough classmates to grow socially without feeling overwhelmed. Whitefield teachers will care for your child as an individual, fostering Christ-like character with understanding and grace.
