    History

    Founded in 1949, Hawai‘i Preparatory Academy is in the small town of Waimea (population 7,028), on the northern side of the island of Hawai‘i, in a beautiful, rural setting that National Geographic named one of the best places in the world to live and play. If you中国福利彩票app靠谱吗 could choose any place in the world for a school, it would be difficult to find one that offers more opportunities than this one.

    Overview

    • HPA is a K-12 coeducational school with boarding for students in grades nine through twelve and postgraduate.

    • HPA is a place for highly-motivated students who seek a rigorous academic program while engaged in extraordinary learning experiences. Our unique island location, which boasts 80 percent of the world`s ecosystems, allows us to offer students unprecedented opportunities outside of the classroom. Students assist in our world-renowned Sea Turtle Research Program; work in our internationally-recognized Energy Lab, and can choose from an extensive schedule of Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) classes.

    • Students are given the opportunity to do cutting-edge research in independent projects such as brain research, genetics, astronomy, and geology; and HPA partnerships with organizations like Stanford University, Cornell, Keck Observatory, and NASA expose students to more "real world" research and a strategic advantage when applying to universities.

    • HPA offers a four-week summer school for student`s ages eleven through eighteen with mostly enrichment courses including SAT prep, math, science, English, ESL and the arts.
