"It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men." Frederick Douglass
"Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."
1 Timothy 4:12
Walker Memorial Academy, a Seventh-day Adventist school, recognizes that God is the source of knowledge and wisdom. We believe that God is the Creator of the universe and that His creation of man was an expression of His love. God created man perfect, but because of sin man lost his original state.
Christian education, by perfecting faith in Christ, restores in man the image of his Maker, nurtures in man an intelligent dedication to the work of God on earth, and develops in man a practical preparation for service to his fellow men. We try to reveal God's love in all areas of the curriculum, allowing each student the opportunity for decision-making through critical and creative thinking.
What We Do
Walker Memorial Academy provides students with opportunities to become active in the community and positive contributors to society. Community service enables students to acquire skills and knowledge as well as provide a service to others that need it in some way.
Doing community service not only makes a difference to the organization being served, but also makes a difference on the student. Students develop civic and social responsibility skills and become more aware of their community needs.
There are so many opportunities to share our faith just outside the doors of our churches. Lost, lonely, hurting, needy people can be found in every community in every country on the face of the earth. Every one of us could make it our life’s work to demonstrate the love of Jesus to people in need.
Service mission trips encourage young people to be salt and light. They share their Christian faith with people through the demonstration of God’s love . . . in a practical and in tangible ways. And, in the process they restore hope and joy to hurting people.
Mission trips take teenagers out of their comfort zones where masks drop, and people become real. This puts them in a place where they rely more directly on God. Teens exercise life skills: responsibility and accountability to the team, good citizenship, compassion, tolerance, friendliness, acceptance, self-control, determination, endurance, and dependability. By experiencing different cultures, teens become better-rounded and gain a greater appreciation for people that are different from themselves.
Service mission trips help to establish a lifestyle of service in teenagers that often carries into adulthood. Teenagers learn to appreciate how fortunate and blessed they are.
Opportunities for spiritual growth abound on the campus of Walker Memorial Academy. Our campus ministry programs work with students to help them live out a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Whether it is in weekly chapel services or participating in week of prayer, or in our youth church. Walker Memorial offers students the chance to be a part of a vibrant community of faith.
Our mission is to bring students, faculty and staff to an encounter with Christ, then encourage them to grow, equip them for ministry and empower them to fulfill their life’s purpose.
The purpose of Campus Ministry is to influence the campus community with the power of God’s word.
It is our hope that all of our students would grow to be servants of Christ in their school, churches, and communities. It is our prayer that we would encourage and help our students grow in their walk through Bible classes, discipleship groups, chapel, mission opportunities, and service projects. When they graduate and head to college, it is our hope that they will be the salt and light on their college campuses.
At Walker Memorial Academy, Christ is the center point of all we do, and our daily mission is to bring Him glory, honor, and praise.
