At Hong Kong Academy, we value how children learn as well as what they learn. From Pre-K to Grade 12, we are committed to creating an engaging and supportive learning environment for every student. The unique programmes, exceptional faculty and environmentally-friendly facilities at Hong Kong Academy (HKA) all contribute to the school’s rigorous, student-centred education.

Our programmes are designed to challenge students to explore new perspectives, maximise opportunities for growth and develop a strong sense of their own identity. In addition to offering the International Baccalaureate Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma programmes, all HKA graduates earn an HKA Diploma and the Global Citizen Diploma (GCD) Certificate. HKA is the only school in Hong Kong to offer the GCD and is the host school for the global consortium. We also offer a comprehensive co-curricular programme, including after school activities, clubs, performing arts, sports and mother tongue classes, through which our students build on existing skills, explore new interests, compete, create and grow.

Starting in early childhood, HKA cultivates a commitment in its students to understanding others and making decisions with an awareness of how they affect communities. By studying real-world issues students learn how to analyse information, respect diverse perspectives and positively contribute to society. Starting in middle school students build their Global Citizens Diploma (GCD) portfolio showcasing their unique identity and competencies in the areas of intercultural communication, community engagement, global understanding and academic excellence.

Our whole community is committed to providing a joyful and authentic learning environment for every child. HKA parents are highly engaged, contributing a wide range of backgrounds, expertise, skills and resources which enrich school life on a daily basis. And because we know that strong partnerships between home and school are beneficial to student wellbeing, HKA promotes a culture of thinking, trust and collaboration by hosting regular parent education events, social gatherings and community clubs throughout the year where everyone's voice is valued.

HKA graduates are able to effectively apply research, critical thinking and communication skills precisely, flexibly and intentionally across subject areas and consistently outperform the IB Diploma Programme world pass rate and average total points. Each year HKA alumni are accepted to pursue degrees in a wide variety of professions at competitive universities and colleges all around the world.
