As a small, community high school, Whites Creek offers a positive, supportive environment that puts the focus on students’ needs. Our students belong to distinguished, nationally recognized model career academies: Ninth Grade Academy; the Academy of Alternative Energy, Sustainability, and Logistics; the Academy of Education and Law; and the Academy of Community Health. All students begin in the Freshman Academy. As sophomores, students may choose one of our Academies and a corresponding pathway, including Automotive Technology, Community Health, Entrepreneurship, Law, or Teaching as a Profession K-12.
In addition to our academies, WCHS offers academic enrichment through Advanced Placement courses. Through a variety of dual enrollment and dual credit opportunities, our students earn more college credits than any other school within our district. WCHS also offers a wide range of academic programs via Cambridge Advanced International Examinations, helping our students become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged citizens.
To ensure our student are well-rounded, we offer athletics, clubs and programs, including Leadership, Student Council, Freshman Seminar, Senior Capstone, Critical Thinking, Band and Dance.
