Walker Memorial Academy, a Seventh-day Adventist school, recognizes that God is the source of knowledge and wisdom. We believe that God is 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.
"It is the work of true education…to train the youth to be thinkers, and not mere
reflectors of other men's thoughts." --Education, page 17.
Walker Memorial Academy is a training ground for citizenship in this present life, and for the life to come. The school cooperates with the home, church and community in the formation of character, as follows:
To lead each student into a personal knowledge of and a fellowship with Jesus Christ
to the betterment of himself, his family, and community.
To train each student to think and to evaluate resources at his disposal to enable the
student to discriminate between Biblical and non-Biblical values.
To give opportunities in the community for service learning and provide authentic
learning projects that make learning a real-world experience.
To teach students the dignity of labor by requiring participation in the management
of and responsibility for school owned property.
"True education means more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. It
means more than a preparation for the life that now is…It is the harmonious
development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. It prepares the
student for the joy of service in this world, and for the higher joy of wider service
in the world to come." --Education, page 13.
