Welcome to Hualalai Academy
Hualalai Academy is a K–8 college preparatory school that empowers students through an integrated curriculum and experiential learning to develop their academic, artistic, social, and physical skills. We provide a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment that encourages exploration, community involvement, and lifelong learning. Hualalai Academy serves the community of West Hawaii and draws students from a diverse range of families.
Hualalai Academy is located on a beautiful fourteen-acre campus, located three miles north of Kailua on the slopes of Hualalai. Honoring its natural environment, our school was certified as a wildlife habitat by the national Wildlife Federation in 2007. Undeveloped sections of our property provide the four basic elements for wildlife to thrive, and trails through these areas allow our school to connect its learning experiences with nature.
What is the Hualalai Academy Experience?
It starts with an environment that gives each student the opportunity to learn with a focus on accountability, integrity, and respect. Each faculty member carries the responsibility of addressing the individual needs of each student and doing so with a strong dose of aloha.
Further, the school commits its resources to a broad, challenging curriculum that focuses on developing skills that students will need to be successful in our rapidly changing world. This curriculum is supported by a wide array of co-curricular options rarely found in a small school.
