Elementary & Middle School
Elementary School includes students from kindergarten through fifth grade, with kindergarten being a full-day program (same hours as the rest of the school). Also, starting in the 2019-20 school year, HAA will have combined 1st/2nd & 3rd/4th grades, which will provide younger students with opportunities for advanced learning, and older students with opportunities for enhancing their leadership abilities.
Our day for all students begins at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. (2:00 p.m. on Fridays). Hot lunch is available for purchase in advance.

Light blue HAA logo polo (Mon - Thurs), Burgandy HAA Polo (Friday) - Must be purchased from Dennis Uniform Company
Navy blue bottoms (slacks, shorts, skorts or jumpers) - Can be purchased anywhere uniforms are sold (ie. Target, Wal-Mart, Kohl’s, J.C. Penney).

Hinsdale Adventist Academy follows the curriculum as developed by the NAD (North American Division of SDA) with an enhanced program including foreign language instruction (Spanish) with a certified Spanish teacher beginning in Kindergarten. Students also receive music and physical education instruction from teachers certified in these fields, and complete computer training in the school’s computer lab. All students have designated time each week to visit the school’s library to check out books and enjoy time with the school’s librarian.
