Enrollment at Kūlia Christian Academy is open to preschool-age students between the ages of 2 and 5. Students entering the 3's, 4's and junior kindergarten class must be fully potty-trained before the first day of school.

  • Students entering the 2's program must turn 2 by December 31 of the current school year. Students who turn 2 prior to the start of the first day of school, may start on the first day of school. Student who turn two after the first day of the school, but before Dec. 31 of the current school year, may start the day after their second birthday. Students entering the 2's class DO NOT need to be potty trained. The KCA staff will assist parents with potty training during the school year. 

  • Students entering the 3’s program must be a minimum of 2.9 years when the school year begins in August and turning 3 by December 31 of the current school year.

  • Students entering the 4's program must be a minimum of 3.9 years when the school year begins in August and turning 4 by December 31 of the current school year.

  • Students entering the junior kindergarten (JK) program are usually late-born students who are not eligible for kindergarten because their birthdates fall after July 31. However, all 4-year-old students are eligible for JK as long as they are eligible for kindergarten the following school year.



As a ministry of New Hope Oʻahu, Kūlia Christian Academy is here to serve Oʻahu families looking for quality Christian child care. Kūlia Christian Academy offers rolling enrollment and will fill available openings throughout the school year. Families who are interested in applying to Kūlia Christian Academy are encouraged to do the following:

  • Browse the school's website to learn about KCA's program.

  • Complete an online application and submit the application and application fee electronically. (The non-refundable application fee is $75.)

  • Schedule and complete a video conference call with KCA's director. 


Once steps 1 - 3 have been completed, families will be contacted via email by KCA's office administrator. If space is available, families will be sent an acceptance letter. If space is unavailable, children will be placed on a waitlist, and families will be contacted when a space becomes available.


KCA provides interested families with a tour on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9am and 11am. Tours take approximately 20 minutes. Prosepctive families will have an opportunity to see the classroom and playground space. In addition, the school's director will also take the time to share with you more about KCA and answer any additional questions you may have.

*Please note tours are only scheduled when school is in session between August and June. Tours are not scheduled during school breaks, fall, Christmas, or spring break, and during the month of July when the school is closed for the summer.
