2016 Listing of Private Schools

With the large number and variety of private schools in Hawai‘i, you may find yourself asking, Just where do I start? Look no further than the following list. The 116 schools and two colleges in our chart are organized alphabetically by island, along with each school’s contact information and other important data.



Published:

The list was provided by the Hawai‘i Association of Independent Schools (HAIS). All data were prepared by the individual schools. A little explanation as to some of the categories: We list a single contact name for each school. This is usually the admissions director. We wanted to give you a more personal place to start your search than just calling the school office. Most schools also have informative websites. The tuition figure for each school is yearly tuition. It’s sometimes given as a range. Usually the high end of the range is for older children and the low end for younger grades, but this varies. Preschools often charge by the month. In that case, we’ve noted it. Contact individual schools for more details. The “% Students Receiving Tuition Assistance” column tells you the percentage of students at a school receiving some type of financial aid. This will help you judge your chances for financial assistance. The Accreditation column shows which organizations have accredited a school. Please see the list of acronyms here. Happy hunting!
