Whitefield Academy celebrates 25 years!
SMYRNA, GA (October 21, 2021): Smyrna’s Whitefield Academy
is proudly celebrating its 25th anniversary. Twenty-five years ago, a
small group of parents and strong prayer warriors came together with
the single purpose of establishing a true Christ-centered school in
the Atlanta area whose mission was to provide a rigorous academic
environment with a Biblical worldview and an unwavering
belief in Jesus Christ.
As Whitefield Academy celebrates its 25th anniversary
during the 2021 - 2022 school year, the school continues
to center on this mission. This charming Smyrna campus
has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a
former horse farm in the country. Since it’s first year in
1997, Whitefield has grown into a community of almost
900 students in grades PreK through 12th grade and
calls a 100-plus acre campus in Smyrna home.
“Twenty five years ago, our founders established a
mission that has provided for us a solid foundation in Christ,” states
Head of School, Kevin Bracher. “We take that charge seriously and
remain steadfast in our unwavering focus on our foundational beliefs
and core values, embracing a family-based community, focused on
providing top-notch academics, along with instilling in students a
passion for others ahead of self in a truly Christ-centered atmosphere.”
Brostrand Hall, the new Lower School building, opened its doors
in 2020 and complements the existing Founders Hall and Morris Hall
buildings for the Middle School and Upper School. As the campus
grew over twenty five years, the community followed suit with over
twenty Christian life programs, more than
fifty athletic teams and forty fine art programs and events for
students and families. Whitefield’s latest graduating class
was welcomed to it’s Alumni Association resulting in a
milestone of over a thousand alumni worldwide.
“With all of its astounding growth, one thing is for
certain,” remarks Bracher. “Whitefield Academy believes
that parents, students, faculty, and sta all play an integral
role in achieving the mission of the school and fostering a
close-knit community that we take pride in.”
The private preparatory school has already begun
celebrating its 25th year with a Founders Day Luncheon in
August and its annual Great Day of Service in September,
which supported over 40 charities across the Atlanta area. This past
September, Whitefield hosted its second Night of Worship event for
the entire school community. More celebratory events are scheduled
for the school year including Whitefield’s bi-annual fundraising auction
in April 2022.
