Come and attend one of Hawaii’s premier institutions where students learn together in a family (ohana) environment. Come and see why students consider their years at Hawaiian Mission Academy among their best! As alumni of Hawaiian Mission Academy, John and I feel privileged to have graduated from a school that prepare us not only for our careers, but also for service to others. We spent some of our best years at Hawaiian Mission Academy – where caring teachers do more than instruct, where students learn more than book knowledge, and where students develop “the head, the hand, and the heart” in a spiritual atmosphere. We want to invite you to join a school where each student matters and where faculty and staff care about you like family.

Former Governor John D. Waihe`e, III and First Lady Lynne Waihe`e (Board Chair), Class of 1964

Hawaiian Mission academy provided the opportunity and support that shaped much of my personal and professional future. Having a college prep classes helped me set my sights on a college education, which eventually led me to Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. It was at Hawaiian Mission Academy that I learned the strength of leadership through serving others. My teachers taught me that it’s not just about having a successful career; it’s how giving to others is the true reward and blessing.

Russell P. Kim, DDS, Class of 1982

Hawaiian Mission Academy gave me the foundation to build not only a meaningful career but a wonderful life. There I learned not only about reading, writing and arithmetic. I learned about compassion, character, and competence. We learned about serving others and about making a positive contribution to community. Whether presiding over a trial or parenting my children, I’m a better person because of what I learned at Hawaiian Mission Academy.

David A. Pendleton, Class of 1985

The fundamental Christian education I received at Hawaiian Mission Academy not only gave me essential academic skills for pursuing a career in medicine, but more importantly played a key role in my character development. Participating in school functions such as Week of Prayer, Camp Erdman, and Hearts of Fire taught me life lessons of: integrity, service, and compassion. As a parent I know all about sacrifices and attending Hawaiian Mission Academy was an investment in my future happiness and success.

Sandra T. Rodriguez-Fortner, M.D., Class of 1991 (Magna Cum Laude)

There is no doubt that the influence of all the wonderful teachers and students at Hawaiian Mission Academy had a lot to do with my accomplishments. Needless to say, I truly treasure the experience and memories of Hawaiian Mission Academy. I am just so glad to know that the school continues to carry the beacon.
