What Makes Whitefield Academy Different?

We desire to educate and cultivate students who are critical thinkers, clear communicators and compassionate leaders. What will this look like for your child? They will be immersed in a distinctly Christian culture where they walk alongside nurturing faculty and examine life through the lens of Scripture. They will experience joy as they develop their unique talents and interests, form lasting friendships with classmates, and deepen their understanding of themselves as image bearers of God. Whitefield students thrive as part of a challenging, loving school family. For all of these reasons and many others Whitefield has become the leading classical Christian school in Kansas City.

Pre-Kindergarten

Pre-Kindergarten

The early childhood years are the most important and influential time in a child’s life and provide the best opportunity to cultivate an enduring love of learning.

Grammar (K - 6)

Grammar (K - 6)

Elementary aged students are eager to learn and absorb information, so we deliver curriculum in ways that lay the foundation for advanced study.

Logic (7th - 9th)

Logic (7th - 9th)

As students begin to analyze the world around them and question “why,” we teach them formal logic and the correct methods of reasoning.

Rhetoric (10th - 12th)

Rhetoric (10th - 12th)

The culmination of the process of learning brings knowledge and understanding together to be expressed wisely and persuasively.

“One of the ways Whitefield prepares you for college is the required 20 page thesis paper and defense.  If you can write and defend that, then you can survive any research paper your college professor throws your way.”

Sarah Coates,
2015 Whitefield Graduate

“We love Whitefield because instead of simply pushing our children on to the next grade, every member of the faculty and staff are wholeheartedly and prayerfully concerned with growing our children into Godly, intelligent and critically thinking individuals.”

Rachel Hutson,
Whitefield Parent

“The teachers find the way to connect what we learn in class  to the BIble and put it in real life perspective.  All the stuff I do here at Whitefield is to glorify God more.”

Jordan Threat,
6th Grade Student

“At Whitefield, three things are central: Christ, character and community.  In everything we do, as faculty, staff and students, and everywhere we go, we seek first to honor Christ.”

Matt McIntosh,
Whitefield Upper School Head Teacher
