HKA has a comprehensive online application facility. The process may include input not only from parents but from current teachers and applicants themselves, depending on the grade applying to. Be aware that each application may take around one hour to complete. It is vital that you read our 'Before Applying' page prior to beginning the process.
The 'New Applicants' stage is an inquiry and does not constitute the whole application. Should your child go on to become an HKA student, the information that you enter here will automatically be transferred into our database (Veracross) and will form the basis of your child's data profile.
If you are an existing HKA family then please apply via the 'Admissions Portal' using your existing Veracross login.
*Our admissions portal is compatible with all recent versions of internet browsers. Please note that for Internet Explorer, version 9 or higher is recommended. Latest versions: Internet Explorer | Google Chrome | Firefox
