K-5 Applicants

Imagine your child challenged, nurtured, and loving their Lower School day.

At HPA, we fill the school day with creative, place-based experiences and interdisciplinary connections. This is a home-away-from-home where children are eager to arrive and love their classrooms, teachers, and friends from year to year. Our teachers work carefully with each other to lay the groundwork for academic, social, and emotional success that will occur now and during Middle and Upper School. Over time, your child’s unique strengths will unfold and flourish in this community, where we strive for our best and sincerely contribute back to the ‘ohana we create together.

Note: Applicants for kindergarten must turn 5 years old by July 31 in the year of kindergarten entry.
