About HKAA

Principal’s message

Hong Kong Adventist Academy offers Christian educational program from primary to Grade 12. The school is located in the Clearwater Bay, the southeastern part of Hong Kong. The majority of students come from the communities of Tseung Kwan O, Sai Kung district and Hong Kong Island, but some of them are from as far as the continents of North America, South America and Africa.

Hong Kong Adventist Academy offers an international curriculum which combines the best features of the American, British and Hong Kong curriculum. The school is organized into three sections, namely, elementary, middle school and high school. In the elementary and middle school section, we offer a hybrid of the American common core, International Primary Curriculum, and local Chinese and Mathematics curriculum. In the high school section, we offer a US high school diploma program in affiliation with Griggs International Academy (GIA). Thus, the senior secondary students would be able to graduate with an accredited US high school diploma offered by GIA.

Our school does not exist just for the imparting of academic knowledge. An Adventist pioneer Ellen White once wrote “True education means more than the perusal of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man.” Thus in our school, values and beliefs of Christianity are not just tacked onto an academic program – they are foundational and central to everything that happens within our school. We believe that what this world needs more than anything now is men and women of character who are prepared to make a difference, and this includes both teachers and students. In a world that seems to have lost its direction, we endeavor to provide an education program which delivers not only high academic outcomes, but more importantly, have a positive eternal impact on our students.
