Congratulations and welcome to the Middle School!

Aloha future Ka Makani,

We are thrilled to welcome you into the HPA ‘ohana (family). In this time of social distancing, we’re increasing our virtual efforts to help you experience HPA and meet some of the people who make our community so special. Our campus may be closed, but we are ready and eager to connect with you!

At the Middle School, you’ll join a fun, welcoming community that is dedicated to your growth. Here, you’ll be challenged and supported academically by teachers and staff who truly, deeply care. Just as important, you’ll learn to inspire and be inspired by your fellow Ka Makani. Ultimately, your HPA experience will empower you for the big milestones that come next—in Upper School and life beyond HPA. We can’t wait to get started on the journey with you!

In addition to the resources posted here, we will keep you informed of new connection opportunities as they become available. In the meantime, welcome and congratulations again!

It was a call-to-action for me to serve our oceans. I challenge my capstone students every year to do their part.”

We often think history is something that is ‘done,’ and we know what happened, but I try to get my students to see that we’re putting a story together based on the evidence we have.”
