Application Process

Admissions Policy

All students with a sincere desire to develop mentally, spiritually, and physically and who willingly support the
principles of conduct upon which Seventh-day Adventist Christian education is based are welcome to apply.

Those who enroll will assert their respect and honor for the religious principles on which the school is founded.  It should be understood that every student who presents themselves for admission to Hinsdale Adventist Academy thereby pledges to:
• observe all its regulations
• uphold the Seventh-day Adventist Christian principles upon which the school is operated
• perform all assigned school duties to the best of their ability

Failure to honor this pledge may result in the forfeiture of the student’s right to attend Hinsdale Adventist Academy.  

HAA seeks to serve those who have a relationship with Jesus Christ or are willing to develop one.  Parent(s)/guardians and students are expected to support and uphold school standards.   A student is liable for serious discipline or immediate dismissal from the school if they deviate from the citizenship standards as outlined in the student handbook.

Experience has shown that students do best in school when they have reached a certain age before beginning their school experience.  Hinsdale Adventist Academy follows the guidelines below for admission age:

• Kindergarten – children who are five (5)  years old by September 1st of the current school year are eligible for admission.
• First Grade – children who are six (6) years old on or before September 1st of the current school year are eligible for entrance to first grade.  Students who enroll in first grade will have successfully completed a kindergarten program.


Students who have not attended kindergarten may be submitted for readiness testing to determine eligibility.
