Application  Process

Note:  Requirements may be different  for various grade levels. For a detailed listing of the admission process, please refer to the Admissions Checklist (ENR-00).



All students interested in entering Hanalani Schools must complete the application by request from the Admissions office. Depending on the age of the student, additional forms and references may be required before the application will be considered. A copy of the student's birth certificate, along with an application fee ($75 paper) must also be submitted. Get started now by calling the Admissions office (808-625-0737) or emailing at, downloading the application and reference forms from our Forms Download page - OR - Request an Admissions Packet be mailed to you.



Testing is only one "piece" of the application puzzle. All K4 - 12th grade applicants must complete one of the following tests:

  • K3 applicants do not require an admissions test.
  • K4 - 6th grade applicants, our Admissions Office will contact you to schedule an on campus test for your child.
  • 7th-12th Grade applicants are required to submit scores from the Secondary School Admission Test (SSAT) - please visit to register for the exam. Use Code 3685.
  • 12th Grade applicants should submit copies of their scores on the SAT college entrance examination.


The final step in the application process is the interview. The interview is not automatic but based on the Admissions staff's review of all supporting application documents (i.e. grades, reference, test, etc.).

  • A K3 applicant, along with at least one parent, will attend a personal interview with either our Lower School Vice Principal or K3 lead teacher.
  • After review of the K4 – 12th grade applicants file, the Admissions staff will make a recommendation of whether an applicant will move onto the interview or not.
  • To be considered for acceptance, all applicants must be recommended for an interview.


Our Admissions Committee will review all of the student's information, scores, and interview. If the student is identified as one who will profit from enrollment at Hanalani Schools, an acceptance offer will be sent to the parents. A $500 deposit and Student Enrollment Contract (HA-19) must be submitted to enroll. Tuition payment options and billing account information is also set up during this time.



Once a student is officially enrolled, the Admissions Office will mail a New School Year Packet.  This packet will include a few additional forms you will need to complete and submit to the Admissions prior to beginning school.  It will also include important dates that will help you and your child as you prepare for the transition to Hanalani Schools.  You will also want to visit the campus store to purchase uniforms and supplies for the coming year.
