Our goal during this interview is to get to know your family. With dynamic classrooms that rely heavily on interpersonal relationships, we are looking for students who we believe will thrive in our school environment. Prior to your interview, please submit the Student Profile, Parent Statement and Student Essays portions of the application via SAO.

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.
