At WNA’s afterschool hula classes, hula is taught as a form of worship to our Lord Jesus Christ. Classes are split up into three age categories: Pre 4’s, K through 2nd grade, and 3rd through 8th grade.
In hula class, students master the basic hula steps and are exclusively taught Christian songs. Students are able to participate in special performances for our annual Windward Nazarene Academy annual programs.
We highly recommend organized sports to young children as sports help students improve their athletic skills, physical dexterity, ability to work as a team, and teaches them sportsmanship.
WNA offers a sports program outside the regular school program. This program consists of a basketball league (girls and boys, 4th through 6th grade) and a volleyball league (girls and boys, 4th grade and up).

Jammin' 4 Jesus
Jammin’ 4 Jesus is an extracurricular, creative movement class that is designed to help strengthen developmental needs of young children.
Jammin’ 4 Jesus helps your children to feel comfortable exploring new things and situations by building their self-confidence. We also provide a fun and safe environment so that children learn to take risks and take on difficult situations they encounter during growth. Another part of their growth we focus on is strengthening their large/fine motor skills. In helping with that, Jammin’ 4 Jesus entails creative exercise, stretching, various art activities, and lots of fun, creative movement.
