I am a current student at Whitefield Academy and have been attending it for 7 years. Overall my experience has been great! The school has a very uplifting atmosphere and great academics. The classes are very challenging at times but the teachers are willing to help you outside of class in order to insure success. There is a very strong sense of community within the teachers and students which is one of the school's main focuses this year. Looking back on my years here, I recognize that there have been faults along the way, but I would never consider attending school anywhere else. I feel that by attending Whitefield I have become more confident in myself and in my walk with God. The teachers are very openly Christian and this is an extremely important part of our school for students, teachers, and faculty. As a senior I have started the college search and feel very confident that I will be succesful because of the foundation that Whitefield has instilled in me about working hard and doing your best.

I am currently a student at Whitefield and have had a wonderful experience here. Sure it may have it's issues, but not unlike any other school out there. The school work is challenging and requires work, but there are so many ways to receive extra help from either older students or teachers. Every morning before homeroom, teachers hold extra help" sessions to provide aid in the completion of homework and answer any questions one might have. The teachers are extremely personable and if approached the right way, are more than happy to help with any in school or out of school issues. The students are loving, but like teenagers everywhere, if they see someone that does not smile and does not appear approachable, will be cautious in reaching out. There are, however, students here that do reach out to students that appear unhappy, if that student is open to being approached. Whitefield teaches it's students to love and to put others ahead of self. There are several opportunities to do so. For instance, one day this past month, the entire high school went out and served the community in various ways like delivering canned food to those less fortunate.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
