REGULAR VS. SDA RATES
Members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the state of Hawaii contribute to the educational program of constituent schools through the local church with their special offerings and tithes (10% of their income). Because of their significant contribution to the educational program, students from families whose parents are members of the Seventh-day Adventist church are eligible for a lower tuition rate. This is a special scholarship rate that is subsidized by the local church and corporate church organization.

In order to be eligible for the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) rate, the parent/legal guardian or the student must be an active, baptized, attending member of the local Seventh-day Adventist church and must be able to provide HMA with verification of membership. Active membership will be validated with the respective church clerk or pastor of the local church.
 
REFUNDS
Tuition and any fees (including the comprehensive registration fees) are not refunded. It is understood that students are enrolled for the entire school year or such portion as may remain after the date of entrance. Refunds are only available through participation in the Tuition Refund Plan.
