Happy New Year to all our alumni and friends!

We, at Roy & Dora Whitman Academy, sincerely wish and pray for you a blessed, healthy, joyous, Spirit-led 2017.  We are really hoping that this will be an amazing year of potential growth in the facilities area.  Stay posted for more exciting (hopefully) details soon.  

We are always striving to improve our programming and service to our students to enable them for greater opportunities after their time with us. In 2013, after two long, arduous years of work, we're granted full accreditation through the international accrediting body, AdvancED. We are also accredited under the U.S. organizations, North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI). We offer 5 different AP courses to our secondary students and have recently applied for and been accepted as an AP Capstone program school (the rough equivalent of an IB style program). 
To keep up this trend of excellence, we are constantly looking for motivated, creative, and enthusiastic teachers. If you, or anyone you know is interested in serving the Lord through teaching, please get in touch with us.

Mary Ann Frazier, class of 2009, graduated from university last year with a degree in psychology. She is now back in Jordan working for the American School of Zarqa as the school counselor. We are so proud of her for coming back to serve here in Jordan. We are pleased to say that she is doing a fantastic job of helping new foreign teachers get settled in and adjust to the culture. She is also  giving great guidance and counseling to the students at the school.
