Whitefield Academy has a long tradition of service, and strives to reach our goal of educating Critical Thinkers, Clear Communicators and Compassionate Leaders by dedicating time, resources, mentoring and prayer to our students’ outreach activities.
Our students grow as compassionate servants and leaders on mission trips across the US and abroad.
Whitefield’s eleventh graders have traveled to several overseas locations, including most recently, Haiti, Trinidad.
The junior class travelled to Haiti where they joined American and Haitian partners with Global Orphan Project to minister to children of all ages. They found special connection in singing and sharing Christian testimonies with other high school aged students at a training school for youngsters who have graduated from orphanage life but still need to work on life skills. Playing tag and soccer, braiding hair, working on acquiring Creole words and holding the smallest babies made for a meaningful time at multiple orphanages.
Working alongside indigenous staff and volunteers of the the Trinidad and Tobago Urban Ministries, Whitefield students have developed and led Bible school camps, preached at a boys prison and presented their personal Christian stories and performed skits at schools. Many of the established peoples in Trinidad are of a traditional Hindu background. The Whitefield Children’s Home was built with our students’ sweat equity from 2004-2012.
Emphasis has been on leadership training, learning initiative and responsibility through performing projects for others in need.
Recently our 9th graders have travelled to Sagrada Bible Scholarship Camp in Lincoln, Missouri, where they provide labor to prepare the camp for the upcoming season. Through jobs such as building a fire pit, designing and creating a play area and fixing worn out fencing the students learn how to orchestrate and manage projects.
