As a non-profit international school, Hong Kong Academy (HKA) is stepping into its 20th year with pride and gratitude. The school first opened its red doors on Stubbs Road to just three Primary School students in August 2000. Since then, the first Grade 11 IB Diploma classes launched in 2010 and in the same year the school moved to the Kennedy Town campus. Now a fully authorised three-programme IB World School, HKA graduated its first cohort in 2012 and moved to its outstanding, purpose-built Sai Kung campus in 2013.
Enrolling over 530 students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12, it is notable how HKA has grown whilst still honouring its founding principles of community engagement, inclusion and diversity, mutual respect and educational excellence. Three campuses, 200 graduates, hundreds of volunteers and multiple accreditations, art exhibitions, performances, sports tournaments, student-led initiatives, and community events later, HKA continues to grow and thrive. The school will be hosting a series of community events, projects and exhibitions throughout the year which will celebrate its mission and achievements as well as inspire its community for what lies ahead in the next 20 years.
