Welcome to Whitmore School! Here, your student will take charge of their own education. We call it:

“School. Anytime. Anyplace.”

Our Mission Statement

Whitmore School seeks to provide a supportive, challenging, and alternate learning environment. Students are encouraged to be in charge of their education, giving them the opportunity to develop creativity, independence, responsibility, time management and critical thinking skills. We emphasize mastery of all academic courses, allowing students to view themselves as capable of achieving their educational goals.

At Whitmore School,  students take responsibility for their learning. Don’t panic. Take a deep breath. We believe that all of our students are bright and capable of succeeding, and they do. Every student completes the New Student Orientation before they are assigned their first courses, to help them transition to this new way of “going to school”. We highly recommend that you complete the Parent Orientation so that you can familiarize yourself with our system and support your student as they make this transition.

There is a lot of support at Whitmore School. Your student will work with his or her Guidance Counselor to develop a Personal Graduation Plan. Students work one-to-one with their teachers on every lesson in every course.  Students also receive support from the Student Support Coach when they need help with motivation, setting schedules, etc. Plus, our administrative staff is available M-F 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM EST for your phone call or email.

Students at Whitmore School have access to their courses 24/7, 365 days a year. This gives every student the flexibility to fit school in and around their busy schedule. Students can, AND DO, work any day of the week, at any time of day, and from any location where they have high-speed internet access.
