A Campaign for Le Jardin Academy

This is our time, our moment to lay the groundwork for Le Jardin Academy’s future. 

To create the conditions necessary for our growing student body to connect, create, and design their way to a better tomorrow, new capital projects are underway to:

Make Space for Arts & Innovation
Bring our 'Ohana Together 

This perfectly practical vision – realized – makes MORE possible for ALL students, now and into the future, and sets the stage for future growth and expansion.

Le Jardin Academy has invested more than 3 years and $1 million in master facilities planning and schematic design for this transformational campus project. Now, we must leverage our community superpower – kokua – to raise the funds  to realize our vision. To make a gift or learn more about this campaign, contact Courtney Chow, CFRE, Executive Director of Advancement at 808.261.0707 x1740 or courtney.chow@lejardinacademy.org. Recognition opportunities are available.


Arts & Innovation Center 

We will build an Arts & Innovation Center with purposeful, practical space right in the heart of campus, uniting our Middle and High Schools and serving students in grades 6-12. With 15,150 SF of student-centered program space, inspiration will abound and creativity will flourish in dynamic new spaces.

  • Maker Shop and Maker Classroom
  • Design Classrooms
  • Choral Room
  • Instrumental Room w/ Practice Rooms
  • Middle School Art Studio
  • High School Art Studio
  • Ceramics Room and Kiln
  • Collaborative Rooms
  • Gallery Walk


For community beyond LJA

Beyond LJA students, the Arts & Innovation Center will support community-level programming and partnerships across Windward O’ahu and beyond, elevating the value of an LJA education through enhanced experiences and connections for life.

Bringing Our ‘Ohana Together - Preschool Renovation

After decades of leasing space, the time has come to move our preschool students from Kailua Road to the Main Campus and into their new home LJA's existing C-Wing Building, which currently houses Kindergarten students, will undergo significant renovation to provide space befitting our early learners so that we can move our preschool program from Kailua Road up to the main campus to create an Early Learning Community. Highlights include:

  • Six classrooms
  • Adjoining bathrooms
  • Upgraded playground and green spaces
  • Kitchenette for meal and snack times
  • Teacher workspace
  • New parking stalls

It’s more than a building.

Our PK and JK students deserve all the best that LJA has to offer. On the main campus, their love of inquiry, curiosity, and creativity will be nurtured and amplified by the energy of other LJA students in grades K-12, strengthening ‘ohana. They will also benefit from:

  • Access to main campus resources
  • Improved faculty support and collaboration
  • Stronger relationships across grade levels

Ways to Give

Your cash gifts and pledges fulfilled over multiple years will help us to plan out our project to ensure a successful outcome for our students.

Gifts of appreciated securities -stocks, bonds, and mutual funds - are a wonderful way to make a campaign gift while realizing tax benefits at the same time.

Many companies offer to match your charitable gifts. Ask your employer about a matching gifts program and double or even triple your impact!

Provide for LJA’s future by adding a bequest to your will or living trust naming Le Jardin Academy as a beneficiary. Bequests cost you nothing now and provide support for LJA’s future.

Looking to partner? Corporate gifts and pledges and employee giving programs are great ways to generate big impact for LJA.

Please make checks payable to Le Jardin Academy.
