Whitfield's annual Open House event allows prospective families to enjoy an immersive campus tour co-led by Whitfield faculty and administrators. During your time on campus you will have the opportunity to learn about Whitfield's rigorous academic program and complimentary social-emotional curriculum, robust extra-curricular offerings, winning athletic teams, renowned college counseling program, and ideal school size and student teacher ratio that allows your child to be known and nurtured as a contributor and as a leader.
Families will register for a 75-minute time slot between 1:00 - 4:00 PM. Advanced registration is required.
The Family Interview, which will include parent(s) and the student, will take approximately 45-60 minutes. Both parent(s) and the student will have a chance to talk with one of our admission associates individually. Interviews will be conducted either via Zoom or in-person. 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.

NEW THIS YEAR: SATURDAY INTERVIEW DAY
Whitfield School is offering family interviews on Saturday, December 9, 2023, from 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. We anticipate this to be a popular option, so register early. Like our weekday interviews, we require the Student Profile, Parent Statement, and Student Essay portions of the application to be submitted via the SAO.
We invite prospective parents to join us at Whitfield for an evening of light refreshments and an opportunity to engage with current Whitfield parents, faculty, staff, administration, and trustees. Following cocktail hour, parents will then attend a series of informational breakout sessions pre-selected during registration.
We invite prospective parents to connect with current Whitfield parents through this virtual event from 12:00 - 12:45 PM. Current parents will share why they chose Whitfield, and how their children have grown personally and academically here. This event offers authentic dialogue and the chance to ask your questions, parent to parent.
This conversation is intended to provide an additional layer of connection and perspective for prospective families.
Students will have the opportunity to meet with future classmates and teachers. Parents will attend a reception with school leaders, trustees and current parents. All will attend our Morning Assembly. Breakfast will be served.

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