Stubbs Road Red Doors

Perched on a hilltop above Stubbs Road on Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong Academy opened in 2000 with just three students who would have to climb 103 stairs to reach the iconic red doors waiting to greet them.  

Hong Kong Academy (HKA) was founded as a Primary School by two parents, Teresa Richman and Ben Frankel. As a non-profit international school with a commitment to diversity and inclusion, HKA grew rapidly and opened its Middle School for Grade 6 and 7 students in 2006. By 2008, the school expanded again to include Grade 9 and launch its High School programme. The first Grade 11 International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma classes began in 2010, the same year HKA moved to the Kennedy Town campus. 

Now a fully authorised three-programme IB World School, HKA graduated its first cohort in 2012 and moved to the current Sai Kung campus in 2013. Three campuses, multiple accreditations, performing arts performances, sports matches, tournaments, community fairs, Lunar New Year celebrations, PTCO events, 200 graduates, and hundreds of students later, HKA continues to grow and thrive. We have much to celebrate!
