Opening Days

Our student ambassadors, student council, residential prefects, and faculty will all be there to greet and assist you when you arrive for Opening Days in August. Opening Days are your first few days as an HPA student. You’ll receive orientation and important information, become familiar with the campus, and have lots of opportunities to get to know your roommates, classmates, teachers, and administrators. Opening Days are also full of fun! We explore some of the most beautiful locations on our island and engage in a multitude of activities. We invite you to bring your curiosity and a willingness to learn and engage with your new community. With just a little effort, you will soon find your place in our wonderful, supportive school.
