Reunion 2020

Aloha Ka Makani,

HPA has been closely monitoring (and adapting to) the COVID-19 pandemic, and our top priority continues to be the health and well-being of our ʻohana—our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and our extended community. It is in this context, and with heavy hearts, that we have decided to postpone our Alumni Reunion weekend slated for May 28-31, 2020. We have rescheduled the Reunion for May 27-30, 2021, and look forward to welcoming you and your classmates back to campus next year.


On-campus dorm rooms are available at a discounted ‘ohana rate. For off-campus lodging, we are excited to offer special rates at Kamuela Inn (booking code: hpaohana), The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort, and The Mauna Kea Beach Hotel (for either property just ask for the HPA alumni rate).


Giving back to HPA

HPA makes a difference in the world because of generous Ka Makani like you, who offer their time and gifts to uphold both our present and our future.

Students taking the September 19 ACT

Check-in will begin at 7:30 am at Rutgers Tennis Center. Students must have been on the Big Island for at least 15 consecutive days prior to testing or they will not be admitted, per the governor's mandate. Any student from an off-island school must bring a copy of their airline ticket showing their date of arrival on the Big Island — no exceptions.

Students will be required to fill out a COVID-19 questionnaire and have a touchless temperature taken upon arrival. Anyone with a temperature over 99.9 degrees will not be admitted. All examinees must have a mask, photo ID, and No. 2 pencils. Please do not forget an approved calculator. It is recommended that students bring a water bottle and snack. No water fountains are available on campus.
