Whitefield Academy is a private, Christian school which is a ministry of Highview Baptist Church. Because we receive no funds from the state, federal government, or the church we must raise every dollar it takes to run school programs and educate our students. This is accomplished in one of two ways, (1) either through tuition and fees or (2) through the generous gifts of others.
The reality is, tuition and fees do not cover the full cost of a Whitefield education. Like most Christian schools, Whitefield seeks additional support from tax-deductible gifts to off-set the different between tuition revenue and operating costs. These gifts assist the school and benefit the student body by providing for services and activities not covered by tuition and fees.
In order to keep Whitefield in the forefront of education, to ensure up-to-date technology, provide professional development for our teachers, to upgraded facilities, etc… it is vital for Whitefield to annually receive these additional dollars.We are excited to be able to provide a Christ-Centered, Biblically-Based education. But our continued success in doing so depends greatly on the generosity and support of others. Support from individuals like you. Please prayerfully consider how God would lead you in making a gift today.
Where to Give
The purpose of the Annual Fund is to establish a steady stream of revenue which will be used to help ensure the mission of Whitefield Academy for years to come. The following categories allow for uses which consider changing times and strategize for continued growth of the Annual Fund.
