The Hermiston Junior Academy family exists to show children Jesus, nurture their love for Him and others, teach them to think, and empower them to serve.
Hermiston Jr. Academy is a Seventh-day Adventist school that provides an educational program for students in preschool through eighth grade. We welcome students of all religious faiths with a goal of helping each individual obtain a closer relationship with God.
It is the mission of Hermiston Jr. Academy to provide a Christ-centered program that will give a balanced development of the spiritual, academic, physical and social abilities for all students. This will enrich their elementary studies as well as "...fit them for service in this and the world to come." (Education, E.G. White). Our goals are to help each child achieve academic excellence and to develop his/her full potential in all aspects of the learning experience.
Seventh-day Adventist educators place a hight estimate on the infinite worth of every individual and seek to provide a climate in which a positive self-image may be nurtured. Developing a relationship with Christ is of first importance throughout the total school experience. Academic and physical excellence is promoted by challenging students to fully use their potential capabilities. Students are encouraged to take an active interest in making the community a better place to live, to appreciate the cultural differences and scientific advances of the age, and to develop positive attitudes toward all people.
