Our graduates and former students, families and employees are Dragonflies for life, serving as important global ambassadors of the HKA mission.
In 2012 we celebrated our first graduating class of seven pioneering students. Today, we are proud of our more than 200 graduates, each of whom holds a special place in our community's heart. Complemented by our extensive network of former students, families and employees, our alumni stay connected and continue to contribute to HKA in a variety of ways. It is always a special occasion when a graduate or former student comes back for a visit and we have a chance to hear about what they’ve been up to since leaving HKA.
where are they now?
Our alumni provide an amazing insight into what it means to live our mission in the world beyond HKA. Below, you can see the different ways in which some of our graduates are pursuing their pathways to individual excellence, demonstrating rigor in all of its many forms and contributing to their communities through responsible action.
