Family Engagement

There are numerous ways to get involved at Whitfield—and we are grateful for the many ways that our families support the Whitfield community. Whether lending a hand with decorations for our annual Montage auction, making a leadership gift to the Whitfield Fund, or serving snacks to hungry kids in the Campus Store, Conant Cafe, or Booster Club—there are many opportunities for you to engage in a way that is meaningful to you.

“We always like to invest our time, talent, and treasure in things that we find exceptional or valuable. Our daughter's experience at Whitfield School has been and continues to be both… we want Whitfield to continue to offer its excellence for many years to come to as many students as possible. Toward this end, we volunteer our services, our time and our resources to the best of our ability while we are here. Our volunteerism has been rewarding—we have had the pleasure of hosting two foreign exchange students over the last two years.  This was a valuable and personal experience for our whole family! In addition, Latrice has volunteered as a parent liaison, a campus store and Whitfield cafe volunteer, and served as the Vice President of Communications for the Parents Council Executive Committee. We have both served as potential new parent tour guides. We would encourage other parents to do the same to make their experience as well-rounded as ours has been. There is no place like Whitfield!"

ENGAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Building a community of innovation, collaboration and trust is an essential part of Whitfield’s mission. It is a goal that can only be achieved when all members (students, administration, faculty, staff, coaches, and families) play a role. We invite our families to be present by visiting campus often to attend sporting events, concerts, plays and social events.

Parents Council

Executive Committee

All parents and guardians of Whitfield students are members of the Parents Council. The Executive Committee oversees the operations of Parents Council and meets monthly to discuss committee activities, the budget, and community-wide events.

Philanthropy

Giving is one of the most critical ways our families support Whitfield. Whether you make an annual gift to the Whitfield Fund, recognize our outstanding faculty with a gift to the Honor Project, or make a leadership gift for a capital project, generous philanthropic support helps our school provide and sustain the uncompromising education our families expect from Whitfield.
