About NOJA


  All Faiths are WELCOME!

Every child is unique and of inestimable value in God's sight.  We are committed to providing a balanced program integrating the four dimensions of Christian education:  academic, spiritual, physical and social growth while developing in students an inquiring mind, a respect for others and the desire to have a personal relationship with Jesus.


Our Philosophy

North Okanagan Junior Academy is operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to provide a spiritually oriented education for children. A belief in the existence of the Creator God is fundamental in the philosophy of Seventh-day Adventist schools. We respect His divine authority and recognize His intervention in human affairs. We believe that true education develops the spiritual, mental, and physical powers of each student; preparing them for the joy of service in this life and for the higher joy of service in the life to come. To achieve this goal, we encourage each student to:
  • develop a personal relationship with God and his fellow men as stated in Matthew 2:37-39
  • master the basic academic skills
  • value labor, physical and mental, as the
  • blessing God intended
  • cultivate physical fitness, mental ability, and moral purity as the blessing God intended.

North Okanagan Junior Academy is operated in harmony with the guidance and direction of the Office of Education, North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
