Kohala Adventist K-8 School Builds Community, Character, and Quality Education.

Located in Hawi, near Kohala Seventh-day Adventist Church,

we are eager to bring out the best in our students each day.

We know you only want the best learning environment for your child.  Kohala Seventh-day Adventist School is known for its safe community and commitment to academic excellence. Our enhanced curriculum, bolstered by collaboration from our sister schools, provides a well-rounded learning experience at an affordable cost. 

Does my family have to be Adventist for my child to attend an Adventist school?

Absolutely not, though you and your child will gain the most benefit from Adventist education if you are a Christian or at least open to learning Christian beliefs, as we do teach a faith-based curriculum. We believe that the Creator's design is for "whole person" development - mental, physical, and spiritual - and that, no matter what your religion or philosophy of life, an Adventist school education can help your child make better moral decisions and grow up to become a trustworthy community leader and citizen.
