Admissions

Thank you

We are honored that you are considering enrolling in Alaka'i Academy.

It is a great responsibility to be trusted to care for a child. Especially during the child's most formative and vulnerable years. It is during this time of their life that children begin to shape and mold their character. Each interaction counts at this stage. We are aware of that, and for that reason, we thank you for your consideration. As you make your final determination, please interview with each school, and see if the staff there is able to model the values, attitudes and vision you aspire for your child.

Logic will get you from A to B.
Imagination will take you everywhere!
