Whitfield Affinity Groups are student clubs that provide a facilitated affirming space for students who share an identity, background, or affiliation to explore and reflect upon their own identity, to celebrate shared culture and traditions, and to discuss common experiences, needs, and challenges. Affinity Groups also offer an opportunity for mentorship, support, and community building.

The Diversity Awareness Club is dedicated to discussing and acting on issues that affect the Whitfield School community. Students explore issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and cultural competence and contribute to the creation of a more diverse and inclusive community. Students work with a faculty sponsor and the school administration to plan discussions and activities that will enhance the school community and foster greater unity and understanding among all of our members. The organization is open to all Whitfield students, faculty and staff.
Black Student Union (BSU) provides a safe space for Whitfield's Black/African American students to share experiences based on racial identity and cultural background and to find support and camaraderie to further explore their own identity. The club is open to all middle and upper school students who self-identify as Black/African American.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) is open to all students in grades 9-12, regardless of your faith position or athletic ability. The student-led group meets twice a month to discuss the application of scripture on situations that they may encounter in their daily lives. Student leaders provide devotionals, bible readings, and prayer for the group at each meeting.
International Student Union (ISU) is open to all students in grades 6-12. The purpose of the group is two-fold: it provides a space for Whitfield international students to share experiences that influence integrating into American culture, and it creates the opportunity to celebrate and share with other group members and classmates the many cultures from around the world that make up our student body.
