Academics

Pre-Primary

HKAA offers a unique whole day foundation year prior to embarking on primary school studies. We offer a child-centered, enquiry based curriculum in a unique natural environment by adopting the UK based IPC (International Primary Curriculum) to ensure a solid foundation that allow children to reach their full potential.

We provide innovative ‘hands-on’ activities to offer our students ample opportunities to explore, experience and learn by ‘doing’.

Students are actively engaged in their learning, challenged in their thinking skills and inspired by a unique curriculum to ensure a solid foundation to reach their full potential.

Our holistic enquiry based curriculum encompasses research based teaching methods, multiple intelligences and a variety of teaching and learning styles to address the needs of a diverse student community involving visual, auditory and tactile learners. We nurture future leaders by offering a solid academic program combined with character education and infused by resilience and respect to achieve personal excellence, and equip our pre-primary students with the 21st century skills to embrace challenges with creativity and confidence and in preparation for tomorrow’s global citizens.
