2021 marks Le Jardin Academy’s 60th anniversary.

From its humble beginnings as a single-room preschool in 1961, LJA has grown to become a leader in education and the windward community’s premier PK-12 independent school. Our evolution has been brisk--punctuated by momentous achievements, including a move to our scenic 24-acre campus in 1999, our first graduating class in 2006, the addition of the High School and Gym buildings in 2008, followed by our transition to becoming an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. 

Le Jardin Academy values individuality, excellence, innovation, peace, and relationships.

Our goal is to develop knowledgeable, responsible and caring young people of character who help to create a more peaceful and sustainable world through understanding, stewardship, and respect.

International Baccalaureate continuum of education

LJA provides students with a continuum of education, consisting of three programmes united by the International Baccalaureate philosophy and approaches to learning and teaching. The programmes encourage both personal and academic achievement, and successful completion of the DP programme culminates in the IB diploma. 
Beyond the IB, LJA students are nurtured in an environment that celebrates uniqueness and promotes individual voice, choice, and agency at all stages of learning. Our students feel known, connected, and valued--and are supported through close relationships with faculty, advisors, and staff.
