Hawaii Baptist Academy (HBA) is a private school located in Honolulu. Established in 1949 by Christian missionaries, we now have more than 1,000 students enrolled in grades Kindergarten - Grade 12. All of our graduates qualify for college, and more than 100 students make a decision to follow Jesus each year.
Our Mission Statement
Hawaii Baptist Academy is a Christian college-preparatory school that equips students spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally, so that they bring honor to God.
Academic Excellence in a Christian Community
At HBA, we strive to provide a safe, nurturing, Christian environment where our students can learn and thrive.
Our approach to strengthen each child, as an individual, has proved successful with all HBA graduates gaining acceptance to colleges in Hawaii and numerous colleges nationwide and abroad.
Our students regularly score above the national and state averages on both the Scholastic Aptitude Test and the American College Test.
Our smaller class sizes allow us the ability to provide students with more personal attention than much larger schools. It also allows our students the opportunity to develop lifelong friendships.

HBA is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools. We are also a member of the Association of Christian Schools International. It is licensed by the Hawaii Council of Private Schools. HBA is governed by a board of directors elected by the executive board of the Hawaii Pacific Baptist Convention, an association of Southern Baptist churches in Hawaii.
