Admissions to HBA
Thank you for your interest in Hawaii Baptist Academy. Applications are accepted beginning Sept. 1 through Jan. 31. Please inquire with the Admissions Offices (Elementary or Middle/High School) after Jan. 31.
Entry level grades at HBA are:
|Entry Grade||No. of Openings||Application Deadline|
There are usually limited openings available at other grade
levels (except Gr. 1) since most students continue their education from year-to-year
at HBA, but parents are encouraged to call the admissions offices to check for
openings due to attrition.
Selection for admission is made on the basis of:
- Previous and current grades in school
- Recommendations of current teachers
- Personal interview (waived for non-Oahu residents)
For the middle/high school, performance on the SSAT and on achievement (math, reading, writing) and academic ability tests is considered.
Due to limited enrollment, not all who qualify are accepted. Only those students who demonstrate potential for success at HBA are admitted. If a student is accepted, parents will be mailed a Hawaii Baptist Academy enrollment contract with instructions and deadlines for responding.
Local students must obtain a release card from their previous school and signed by a parent. HBA reserves the right to determine which courses and grades from transfer schools will be accepted and computed into the HBA cumulative grade point average.
New students must have an entrance physical examination with all required immunizations documented on the HBA Student Health Record (this form is mailed to all new students). In addition, a tuberculosis clearance must be obtained within 12 months prior to the start of school.Application Process »
