Admission Requirements

Here is an overview of our application/admissions process for the 2023-2024 school year, for NEW enrollments in Kindergarten through Grade 5:

Student’s parent or legal guardian attends one of our Wai’alae School Informational Sessions. (optional)

Attendance at an Informational Session is not mandatory, but is strongly encouraged for any parent/guardian who does not already have a student enrolled at Wai’alae School. To view a list of our Informational Session dates and to sign-up for one of our Informational Sessions, please click here.

Student’s parent or legal guardian submits a COMPLETED Wai’alae School Student Application Form. (required)

2023-2024 Wai’alae School Student Application Form (Kindergarten through Grade 5)


For students who do not live within Wai’alae’s geographic service area, a COMPLETED Student Application Form must be submitted no later than 11:59pm Wednesday March 1, 2023 to be included in the lottery. Student Application Forms received after 11:59pm March 1, 2023 will be added, in the order received, to any waitlist that is generated by the lottery for that grade level.

For students who live within Wai’alae’s geographic service area, there is no application deadline, but families are encouraged to complete and submit the Student Application Form as soon as possible.


If/when a student is accepted for enrollment, the Parent/Legal Guardian will be notified via email and/or phone of the acceptance and will be asked to complete the Student Enrollment Form (and submit required documentation) within 10 working days of the notification.

For students who do not live within Wai’alae’s service area, notification of acceptance could be made at any time between the submission of the Student Application Form and the first day of school (for students) of the 2023-2024 school year.
