Daily Bible instruction and prayer, Scripture memorization, weekly chapel services and positive adult Christian role models all help each child seek and develop a growing relationship with God Malama Adventist Christian elementary school and Day-Care offer children a safe, positive and encouraging educational environment

Educational Philosophy

Based on a God-centered view of truth as presented in the Bible, the integrating center for all of Malama’s educational experiences is found in the person of Jesus Christ. Malama Adventist School offers an environment that promotes and teaches spiritual principles of living and encourages positive relationships within the context of biblical imperatives. Core academic areas require content accountability and focus on the leadership abilities of clear and effective oral and written communication; sound reasoning skills, numerical reasoning and computational ability and clear decision-making. The curriculum challenges the student to use every talent vigorously to honor God and contribute to society. Students must be prepared to meet life’s intellectual and philosophical challenges with a well-reasoned faith.

Whether in preschool or elementary school, Biblical Worldview is not a subject that is merely “tacked on” to the rest of the curricular areas. Malama Adventist School’s deep commitment to the development of discerning leaders requires instilling in students a value system from which to discern right and wrong.

Certified Christian teachers equip students to lead and succeed through knowledge of God’s word, combined with high-quality academic training.

The idea of education as expressed by one of the founders of the Adventist School System: "True education means more than a pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that is now. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, mental, and 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, p. 13.
   Education must include the communion of the mind of man with the mind of God. This communion should lead to the acceptance, in sentiment and principle of the teachings of Jesus Christ. The principles of education given by Jesus are the only safe guides.  When the great truths of God's Word are believed and received and carried into life practice, education of the highest order results.
   In harmony with this idea the school will endeavor to carry on a school program in which equal emphasis will be given to the physical, mental, social and spiritual phases of education.
