Admission Requirements

Overview of Wai'alae's Admissions process for NEW enrollments in Kindergarten through Grade 5:

Step 1: Student’s parent or legal guardian attends one of our Wai’alae School Informational Sessions. (optional)

Attendance at an Information Session is not mandatory, but is strongly encouraged for any parent/guardian who does not already have a student enrolled at Wai’alae School.

Step 2: Student’s parent or legal guardian submits a COMPLETED Wai’alae School Student Application Form. (required)

2024-2025 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 needs to be submitted by 11:59pm March 1st to be included in the lottery for the upcoming school year. Student Application Forms received after 11:59pm on March 1st are 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 upcoming school year.
