Curious about Whitfield? Watch the video below and engage with us through one of our many events to explore the ways in which our school lives its mission, relationships shape our culture, and our community embraces academic rigor balanced with time with family, friends, and the pursuit of personal passions.


Plan to join us via Zoom at 6:00 PM on the evening of Tuesday, January 12, 2021 or Tuesday, February 16, 2021 to engage in a panel discussion with Whitfield teachers and experience an interactive classroom that provides a glimpse into the student-centered teaching at Whitfield.

Calling all 5th Graders!

Did you know Whitfield starts in 6th grade? Learn about our 6th grade program during this interactive event with Ginny Fendell, Whitfield’s Director of Health & Wellness. In her role, Mrs. Fendell guides our students’ character development through the Habits of Mind & Heart curriculum. She also happens to make the best chocolate chip cookies ever!

Students will join Mrs. Fendell, Admission Coordinator Lisa Trout, and current Whitfield students for an afternoon of baking, making new friends and learning about the ingredients that make Whitfield such a special place.  Register below.  Once we receive your registration we will mail you a recipe card and supply list for the event!

We invite prospective parents to connect with current Whitfield parents through these conversations.  Hear their stories about why they chose Whitfield, and to learn how their children have grown personally and academically here. Moderated by Director of Institutional Advancement Emily Klimek and Director of Admission Emily Chrysler, these events offer authentic dialogue and the chance to ask your questions, parent to parent.  

As these Conversations are intended to provide an additional layer of connection and perspective for prospective families, they are reserved for those who have participated in one or more admission events already this season.  To learn more, please contact the admission office.

The next Conversation will take place at 12:00 PM on February 3, 2021.
