"It was always our dream for our children to attend HBA, because we knew the school would provide the solid Christian and educational foundation that we wanted for our children. This would not have been possible without the financial aid award. Although Caleb just started kindergarten, he has transitioned smoothly into a loving and Christ-centered environment. We are so grateful and can't wait to see Caleb's spiritual and educational growth over the next 13 years!"

"Before my wife passed away from breast cancer, she told me to raise our daughter, Angela, as a religious person, so she could have spiritual peace. HBA has helped our daughter to attain stability and provided her with the intellectual and spiritual foundations I promised my wife. For all of these, we are eternally grateful to the Hawaii Baptist Academy."

Andrew Tong

"I came to Christ in Hong Kong and was called to full time ministry in Hawaii. In Hawaii, quality education comes with a price tag. Both of our children are able to attend HBA because God continues to provide for them through HBA’s financial aid program. To us, education is not only academic, but also moral and spiritual. I am especially grateful that the school has Christian Emphasis Week, which really draws my children to focus on God. Now I can testify that serving the Lord does not mean that I have to sacrifice my children’s education."

Andrew Tong, Senior Pastor, Hawaii Chinese Baptist Church
