LJA offers a nurturing learning environment and rigorous academic program to develop the whole child both academically and personally.

At LJA, we embrace the International Baccalaureate (IB) philosophy and framework to root curriculum and pedagogy to remain at the forefront of best teaching and learning practices. All three IB programmes are distinct in their organization and approaches to meet the needs of the children they serve.

Our emphasis on inquiry, self-directed learning, and differentiated instruction promotes lifelong learning while the practice of thinking, social, communication, research, and self-management skills prepares students for the challenges of the 21st century.

Imagine your child’s learning journey through our programme pages:


Woven throughout each of these programmes is an emphasis on inquiry, real-world relevance, learner engagement and agency, skills development, and the application of such for the purpose of improving the world around us and creating and harnessing new knowledge in ways we cannot yet imagine. Students share and act on their learning by taking action on local, national, and global issues from an early age.

At LJA, classroom walls fade away in favor of open spaces and individual pathways. Our natural setting, in combination with our commitment to nurturing diverse perspectives, cultures, and environmental resources, provide the conditions for individualized learning pathways to success and happiness. Students are often found learning outdoors, in the forest adjacent to our campus, at the neighboring Kawainui Marsh, or at various offsite locations. 

Capstone projects that showcase learner agency offer a culmination of the learning growth acquired through each programme.
