Welcome to the Whitman Academy Website! It is time for our school to take education to the next level, and our website is an important part of that goal.
For the past seventeen years, Whitman Academy has thrived as a unique institution with a firm academic and spiritual foundation. Our students come from seventeen different nations to a school staffed by exceptional, highly-qualified educators. As our school has grown, so has the diversity of our student body. This growth has brought forth new challenges including that of improving the breadth and depth of our curriculum and class offerings. As a result, we are moving toward the next level of academic excellence.
Our first step has been to gain accreditation from a world-class accrediting body, AdvancED, Inc., which has accredited over 23,000 schools in sixty-five countries. The AdvancED accreditation process provides schools with a comprehensive framework for continuing improvement in student learning and school effectiveness.
The accreditation process has been completed. Whitman Academy is being recommended as an Accredited School. It has been a hard journey for teachers, support staff, parents, students – more than 30 people were involved in the process. We demonstrated to AdvancED Inc., the accrediting organization, excellence in education, continuous improvement, and organizational effectiveness. As this states, we must be continuous in these efforts. This means building institutional capacity to improve sustained student learning and improve effectiveness and efficiency throughout the institution.
We at Whitman, look forward to showcasing the wonderful teaching and learning that happens on a daily basis at our school.
