What Parents are Saying About Whitefield-at-Home
“We have loved, loved, loved, the support of the Whitefield family! Praying online together, reading scripture together and listening to teachers encourage students to trust in God and to pray for one another. Blessings abound in the midst of this trial!! … I am amazed at my daughter’s tenacity to finish her school work in a timely manner. I love seeing her react to seeing her classmates online. At first, she was very quiet and reserved. But by day 3 she was joining in and asking questions in a much more relaxed manner.”
Sara, mother of Whitefield Academy 5th Grader
“I wanted to thank…Dr. Johnston and all the amazing teachers and staff at Whitefield Academy for the incredible work and grace you all have demonstrated to us during this very challenging time. It has been a big blessing to be able to continue the work at home.”
Lidia, mother of Whitefield Academy 8th, 6th, 4th and 1st Graders
“We would like to share a great word of THANKS for the entire staff at Whitefield for putting together such a remarkable homeschool program. This has been challenging for our teachers and staff for sure. We are proud of you, grateful for you, and we pray for you.”

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.
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)
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)
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)
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.”
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.”
“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.”
