    Hawaii Baptist Academy Reviews

    104 reviews
    All Categories
    This school deems itself as a "Christian College preparatory-school". Although the faculty are great and show care for their students, the system itself isn't the greatest. It is a baptist school, so it's a given that they'd implement a required semester of bible class every year. However, on top of that, Advanced Placement(AP) courses aren't allowed to be taken for the majority of students until Junior year. This greatly limits the students ability to challenge themselves, and more often than not, students will overbear their junior year schedule and overwork themselves in the next 2 years(junior/senior) in order to try and make up for the lost year in AP courses during sophomore year.

    Hawaii Baptist Academy, being a private, Christian college-prep school, has been very influential in my high school career. I've learned leadership, humility, and fortitude in being myself as I excel through different classes and clubs. The teachers enjoy teaching us and getting to know more about us. The students are studious but also participate in various activities and sports. Access to student counselors, Z-period days for more prep, and even weekly chapels all aid to HBA's great reputation as a community in itself. Both parents and students get involved in projects like Project Grad, Fun Fair, Spirit Week, etc. Lastly, the emphasis on Christian learning is very prompt, allowing believers, such as myself, to strengthen our relationships with Christ, build stewardship and camaraderie. HBA is an amazing school for those interesting in learning, interacting with great people, and creating change in the world.
    Hawaii Baptist Academy is pretty good, but sometimes the work load is a bit much, especially towards the end of the quart r because the teachers give many tests and projects that re due in the same week, plus additional homework for other classes. Overall HBA is a pretty good school, if you are Christian and willing to work hard for good grades. For the most part, the teachers are great, but that is based mostly on personal taste. There is not much interaction between the different grades, so most people just talk within their grade.
