Residential Life:

Photo of Private Day & Boarding School in HawaiiFor many students, the boarding program at Hawai‘i Preparatory Academy is central to the HPA experience. The ability to live with students from Hawai‘i and all around the world gives each student the chance to be a part of a community of motivated students and dedicated teachers.

The connections made between students develop into life-long friendships and foster a genuine feeling of ‘ohana (family). The residential life program provides a safe and healthy environment with high standards for social conduct and personal integrity. Students are expected to strive toward an honorable, respectful, and responsible life as they are supported, and learn from, their community.

Middle School (Grades 6-8) Dorm Information:
The Middle School offers a full boarding program at the Village Campus for students in grades 6-8. A five-day boarding program is an option for families who reside on Hawai‘i Island. Two students share a room with their own bathroom.

Six to eight students live on a hallway with boarding faculty on each floor. The small ratio of students to boarding faculty cultivates commitment and respect that transforms mere adult-child relationships into a close-knit family.

Upper School (Grades 9-12) Dorm Information:
The campus is comprised of three dorms that are separated by gender. Most students live in a double room and some senior students are assigned single rooms. All rooms have high-speed Internet access and the dorms' common area include computers, table games, TVs, DVD players, and fireplaces.
