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. We value each child as an individual, and our small class sizes and exceptionally low student to teacher ratio ensure that we can provide the differentiated learning opportunities every student needs to flourish.
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. 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. As host of the International Schools Theatre Association, we are a regional hub for the performing arts with a variety of workshops, masterclasses and internships available.
Developing global citizens who recognise and respect the richness of human differences is a core component of our rigorous education. At every stage of their learning journeys, we provide students with a wealth of opportunities to initiate and participate in service to others, often working in collaboration with longstanding service partners. By learning about, through and from meaningful action, HKA students engage with both local and global communities with understanding, empathy and compassion, gaining an appreciation for diverse perspectives and experiences.
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. The majority pursue post-secondary degrees at their first-choice universities and successfully secure employment in a wide variety of professions all over the world.
