Hong Kong Academy (HKA) is an independent, non-profit, coeducational day school. Its mission it to provide an outstanding international education for children in the Hong Kong SAR by developing and nurturing intellectually curious, critically thinking, ethically-minded, self-assured students who achieve their full potential as individuals and as responsible members of the global community. The school was launched in September 2000. In academic year 2005/06 its enrollment will consist of students from age 3 to grade 6. The remaining primary grades will be added in subsequent years.

The hallmarks of Hong Kong Academy (HKA) are a truly international, inquiry-based curriculum; small class sizes with high teacher-to-student ratios, special emphasis on Chinese culture and language; integration of information technology into all aspects of the curriculum and school life; and community service. Rather than teach a single overseas curriculum, the school aims to provide an education that emphasizes both local and global perspectives and takes advantage of the rich cultural heritage of China and the diverse backgrounds of the student community. The school is an authorized IB Primary Years Programme school. The language of instruction is English, but the school features a progressive Chinese as a Second Language program that is fully integrated with the rest of the curriculum and that emphasizes immersion and experiential learning.

Hong Kong Academy (HKA) is committed to recruiting non-native English speakers and other students across the spectrum of educational abilities and needs, to the extent of its capabilities and resources. A scholarship fund is intended to provide access to families that otherwise would not afford an international school education. The school's facilities and extra-curricular programs are open to the community at large.

The Hong Kong Academy (HKA) is housed in a former secondary school building centrally located on Hong Kong Island. Classrooms are bright and spacious, and there are outdoor courts for recreation. To foster parental involvement and continuing education, the facility includes a large 'Community Room' with comfortable furnishings, work stations and a toddler play area.

The admissions process at Hong Kong Academy (HKA) seeks to identify families that subscribe to the school's philosophy, and students who will benefit from the educational program and contribute to the school's goals. In addition to an application, the school requires previous school transcripts, a health and immunization report, and a pre-admission assessment.
