Dear R&DWA Community,
Welcome back to school for the last 9 weeks of the year! I hope you had a marvelous time relaxing during spring break. Eleven of our teachers attended the ACSI International Edcucators Conference in Germany and were filled, refreshed, and inspired in our roles as Christian educational leaders. Thanks for praying for the trip.
The students were busy over the break as well. I’m very proud to announce that the 30 secondary students in 3 separate teams competed in the Dead2Red marathon gained crowns of glory for the Lord by coming in 5th, 6th and 10th out of 55 teams. They took 1st and 2nd place among all the schools represented in the race. They were able to raise $1,292 for the building fund. Go Falcons!!!
Our next big event is the Fine Arts Festival, Friday and Saturday, April 22-23. This event showcases our students’ godly characteristic of creativity; God’s first revelation of Himself was through His superlative creativity. Students are encouraged to submit poems for the poetry contest, prepare musical pieces for the talent show, and share their artwork in the art gallery event.
Stay tuned for more details coming soon.
Talent show tryouts will be on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 5 and 6 after school. Sign up is in the office.
Please keep praying over the need for an auxiliary building. We are all hoping for the best.
Yearbooks will be on sale soon. We’d like to use the same US-based company that we used last year so we will have to take pre-paid orders in advance. More information coming soon.

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.
Classes at Roy and Dora Whitman Academy are held in a converted 6 story apartment building. Grades 1 and 2 have ground floor access to the sand playground that is equipped with swings and a climbing fort and the large, paved basketball court/play area. Grades 3 and 4 occupy the second story, grades 5 and 6, the third floor. Classrooms for grades 7-12 are on the 4th-6th floors. Secondary students have access to the fenced in roof for break times.
Because of the location of the school, physical education classes are held in a local club. Students in grades 3-12 are bused to a private club twice a week for sports activities. Drama productions are held at a rented theater.
The current premises are at maximum capacity and lack the facilities needed for all the activities the school would like to offer. Though we have added two additional floors to the original building, further changes are prohibited. We are filling every inch and turning children away for lack of space. Please visit our NEW CAMPUS page to help us raise the funds for a bigger school building.
