Jr. Kindergarten

Hawaii Baptist Academy welcomes our youngest learners through our Junior Kindergarten program.

“At HBA, we bring faith and learning together to build a strong foundation from which our students can transform the world guided by Christian values. At our new Junior Kindergarten, we partner with parents to cultivate our little ones in a developmentally appropriate, safe, and nurturing environment,” said Amy Vorderbruegge, elementary principal. 

Social-Emotional Learning

While HBA is often recognized for its high academic standards, equally important is a child’s social, emotional, and spiritual development. Our school’s program emphasizes these four values: humility, curiosity, love and commitment.

In-Person Classes and Safety

Allowing students to attend class in-person is critical for young learners. That is why we have implemented strict safety measures, such as daily temperature screenings, mask-wearing, frequent hand-washing, and distancing protocols, to ensure the health and safety of our students.
