Whitefield Academy is a self-consciously Christian school, founded, governed, administered and staffed by men and women dedicated to the proposition that, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.” (Proverbs 1:7) Basic to this “fear of the Lord” is an understanding of who God is, and who we are in relation to Him—something indispensable in a truly Christian education, as well as all of life.
We believe that the Christian faith is foundational to every aspect of life and thought. Classes are taught with the appreciation that every concept, fact, or theorem we teach must have as its basic presupposition that the inerrant Scriptures truthfully reveal the Sovereign Creator God. Thus no area of study can be abstracted from the Christian faith.
Our students, who come from across the spectrum of traditions, find our Bible classes and chapel services uplifting and affirming, while challenging them to a faithful Christian life in which Christ is preeminent.
While the school does not intend to bind the conscience of any believer in matters of doctrine, our Statement of Faith outlines the essentials of the faith and lays out the standards of faith and practice we embrace as a school.
A fuller explanation of our views of Faith and Practice are found in our Parent & Student Handbook.
