Learning and Growing Together

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.

All curriculum will be developmentally appropriate to meet the needs of each classroom of students.

Child Development


Academic - Strong focus on developing the whole child through play, literacy, pre-math and pre-writing skills.

Spiritual - Daily Bible lessons, weekly chapel, and integration of faith into all aspects of the curriculum.

Social/Emotional - We will utilize Yale University’s RULER program.

Extracurricular - Art, STEM, Music, and PE will be integrated into the weekly schedule.

Health and Safety

Health and Safety


The health and safety of our children and staff is our top priority. We also believe allowing students to attend class in-person is critical for our young learners. That is why we have implemented layered safety measures to ensure the health and safety of our students.

All faculty and staff are trained in CPR and First Aid. Additional training for specific medical needs will be given as needed.

Fire, evacuation and shelter in place drills will take place throughout the year as prescribed.

Better Together

Children’s Learning


We believe that working together as a team not only builds community but is also vital in helping our children grow to be the best that they can be.

Daily communication, weekly updates, parent teacher conferences, and special parent workshops are just a few of the ways that we build community and enhance the children's learning experiences.

We are so blessed to have a village of supporters, in addition to our Hawaii Baptist Academy ʻohana, we have our GracePoint Church ʻohana.  We welcome you and your family with open arms!
