Hualalai Academy will close its doors to students in all grade levels at the end of this school year. “May 2014. At that point, Hualalai Academy will not exist,” Head of School John Colson told West Hawaii Today following a tumultuous weekend that kicked off Friday afternoon with a letter from the school’s board of directors notifying parents that the K-12 private independent school would close its doors at the end of the academic year — or sooner — because of lacking funding. “Unless we find someone to eliminate the debt.” Hualalai Academy, located at the end of Kealakaa Street in Kailua-Kona, carries a total debt load of approximately $2 million, Colson said. That figure includes the school’s expenses after revenues that total $1.4 million, a $200,000 bridge loan the school in November to keep high school operations going and approximately $300,000 in bridge loans secured during the past week from members of the school’s “ohana” after news broke of the impending closure. “As soon as that one (letter from the board of directors) went out we were contacted by several folks who wanted to make sure we stayed open through the end of the year,” Colson said, noting the school has also received more than $25,000 in direct gifts. “With this level of support already in hand, we most definitely will be able to finish the year.”

Hualalai Academy, was a K-12 college preparatory school, it was the first accredited private, independent, K-12 school in the Districts of North and South Kona ... From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search Hualalai Academy, was a K-12 college preparatory school, it was the first accredited private, independent, K-12 school in the Districts of North and South Kona on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. See also: Hawaii Preparatory Academy Hualalai was founded in 1985 as a K-5 satellite of Hawaii Preparatory Academy in Waimea, by parents who wanted local education for their children, and business owners who needed to draw young professionals to the area. Since it became independent in 1996, Hualalai earned accreditation from the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools[1] and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, established a middle school and high school, and built a campus on 14.875 acres (60,200 m2) that was certified a “Wildlife Habitat” by the National Wildlife Federation in 2007. With a 9:1 student/teacher ratio, Hualalai students were encouraged to participate in state and national programs and have won recognition and numerous awards for academic achievement, athletic performance and artistic pursuits.[2] Enrollment grew from 52 students in 1996 to about 190 in 2008. The school was located on the western slope of the Hualālai volcano, from which it gets its name. The campus is located at 74-4966 Kealakaʻa Street, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740, Coordinates 19°40′27.6″N 155°59′5.37″WCoordinates: 19°40′27.6″N 155°59′5.37″W. It was announced that the school would fold after the 2013-14 school year after filing for bankruptcy. Many contributing factors were attributed to their collapse, the main being the dwindling student body. Initially Kamehameha Schools were interested in the property and had reportedly put in a bid that was under consideration. After a few weeks Kamehameha Schools retracted their bid for unknown reasons. Makua Lani Christian Academy bought the 14-acre property in June 2014 and was able to move from their previous Holualoa campus in time for the 2014-15 academic school year. With the new campus, Makua Lani Christian Academy's enrollment jumped from eighty students to one hundred and twenty, with many being Hualalai Academy transfers.
