Be Extraordinary -Shine

“Let your light shine before men

in such a way that they may see your good works

and glorify your Father who is in heaven.”

Dear R&DWA Community,


We have a lot to be thankful for these days- peace, plenty, and the teachers’ work permits in their hands!  We still have 2 more that need approval, so keep praying.


Online applications close March 1st  for the April 1st decision process. If you know anyone who wishes to apply or if one of your children will be new to R&DWA next year, please make sure you are aware of the deadline.

Please bear with us as we are working out the first-time through trouble-shooting with the application process.  Please alert the office if you run into any difficulties so we can attend to them immediately.


Note, all students for whom English is not their first language must take an English proficiency test. This will be available on the website in the next couple of weeks.



Snow is predicted for next week, so please make sure your children are able to access Edmodo and have joined their classes’ groups.  Educational thinking groups have strongly recommended that students become fluent in online course platforms to be prepared for university.

Most professors in the North America now expect a significant amount of discussion and work to be done online for classes.

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.
