Fulfilling our mission and vision...
Mission: The Roy and Dora Whitman Academy exists to provide quality Christian education in English to Third Culture Kids through creative hands-on-learning and guided opportunities in servant leadership.

Vision: The Roy and Dora Whitman Academy aims to produce well-educated, globally-minded disciples, transformed by the Gospel, with a heart for people’s physical and spiritual needs and the ambition to make a difference in the Kingdom of God.

On October 18, we held our first Service Saturday for the year. High school students visited nursing homes, cleaned up trash in a local park, helped out at an animal shelter, helped out with a children’s program for Syrian refugee children, and showed love to orphans.
Keeping up the traditions...

As is our grand tradition at the end of the 1st quarter, the student council organized and ran the Fall Festival. We have to give them a lot of credit for trying to manage parading 186 students around on the small campus. Last year we had 2 separate parades, one for elementary and one for secondary- much to the disappointment of all who love to see the others’ costumes. This year, we were, thankfully, able to spread out on the new playing field for a wonderful display of student creativity.
Coming of Age…
So many of our graduates have grown up- finished university, married, and some even have school age children!  
Congratulations to our latest alumni to be wed, Jessica Bonifas class of 2013.Whitman staff wish you all the best! Blast from the past.
