About Hawaiian Mission Academy

Hawaiian Mission Academy (HMA), originally called the Anglo-Chinese Academy, began as an international school in 1894 for the children of Chinese merchants traveling through the area. HMA has operated continuously since then, providing great educational opportunities to both local and international students. The faculty of HMA help create an academic climate with a Christian culture which produces responsible citizens who serve in their local and global communities.

Among the alumni are John Waihèe, III, former Governor of the state of Hawaii, and the former First Lady of Hawaii, Lynne Waihèe, who has served as Chair of the Hawaiian Mission Academy Board of Trustees.

Why Attend Here?

Hawaiian Mission Academy is located on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu and offers excellent weather year-round. More importantly, HMA prepares students for success with college-focused instruction. Even if students have very low English skills, if they enter as freshmen (9th grade), HMA can help them greatly improve their English and graduate within four years. There are no school-related activities on Saturdays. In fact, Saturday, also known as the Sabbath, is observed by all students and staff to rest from secular activities and focus on developing good relationships with God and with each other. This offers students a very unique and beneficial experience.
