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. Its vision is to produce well-educated, global-minded disciples, transformed by the Gospel, with a heart for people’s physical and spiritual needs in the ambition to make a difference in the Kingdom of God.
The school is currently housed in a five-story building in West Amman, located within Jordan’s capital city and home to 2.5 million people. Whitman Academy has expanded to a body of 184 students in Grades 1-12 from over 20 different countries and from all cultural backgrounds. The multinational atmosphere stimulates greater understanding and compassion for the community and fosters a global perspective in the students. A fundamental belief of Whitman Academy is that education should kindle students’ delight in learning and lay the groundwork for a joyful life of service to the world around them.
