International Student Program
Whitfield School is an independent, coeducational college preparatory day school for grades 6–12, located on a 26–acre campus in suburban St. Louis. Whitfield cultivates ethical, confident, successful students in a community of innovation, collaboration and trust. Our school is a close-knit and diverse community where each student’s strengths are known, cultivated and celebrated. Our talented faculty capture students’ imaginations and energize them to identify and pursue their passions.
By establishing an international program that includes students from around the world choosing to study at Whitfield, we are providing all Whitfield students first-hand opportunities to experience cultures different than their own—educating students to be curious, respectful and empathetic. In this way, we foster the development of “Cultural Competence,” one of the six Habits of Mind and Heart fundamental to the education of our students. Diversity among a small student population creates strong bonds among students of vastly different backgrounds.
