We are thrilled you have decided to apply for admission to Whitfield! Please find the required steps to complete an application listed below. Along the way, don’t hesitate to reach out to any member of the admission team with questions. We look forward to meeting you and learning more about your family!



The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and families are our top priority.  Given the need to protect their health and safety, prospective families are not able to visit campus at this time. 

Instead, we hope you will join us for one of our many Virtual Visits taking place this fall.  Of course, our admission team is also available to help you as you begin your school search process.  We look forward to getting to know you! 


We look forward to meeting you and your family through a Virtual Visit or other admission event! Once you are ready to apply for admission to our great school, use these quick links to get started!

I chose Whitfield because my brother went here, he just recently graduated, and it was a really great fit. There wasn’t a better place for me than at Whitfield.

Derrick Palmer '25

I chose Whitfield because I thought it was a culturally diverse place where I knew I could find friends.

Winnie Murphy '26

I picked Whitfield because I was blown away by the amazing community. At my visit, every student and staff member did their best to make me feel welcome. I knew that I was surrounded by kind and caring people, and that made a big impact on my decision.

"Since joining the Whitfield team in 2018, I've been very impressed by this diverse learning community. Teachers are creative, dedicated and passionate, and students are deeply engaged in academics as well as a variety of extracurricular activities. Coming from over 50 zip codes and representing many cultural, social and economic groups, we create a balanced, kind community dedicated to high academic expectations while maintaining a low stress environment."
