Living There

Kosrae is the easternmost of the 4 island states comprising the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). Kosrae State is unique among the FSM states in that it includes only one island. Our K-8 school is located on a very peaceful campus within a very short walking distance of a nearby beach and ocean view. The Kosrae SDA Church is included on the same campus. 

This is a beautiful, remote island with a small SDA self-contained compound that is currently being run by the pastor. There are approximately 50 students who attend our SDA grade school and they are taught by Student Missionaries and local teachers. Male SM teachers are preferred.
