For over 50 years, La Pietra—Hawai‘i School for Girls has been educating young women of purpose, on purpose. Its innovative college preparatory program is designed to challenge young women to discover their passions, realize their potential and become the architects of their own success.
La Pietra offers a low 7:1 student teacher ratio and small class sizes averaging 10-15 students. Girls thrive academically and socially in our uniquely sized small school that offers personalized attention, supportive teachers who understand individuality, and a school culture committed to how girls learn best.
La Pietra is prioritizing on-campus, in-person instruction for the 2020-2021 school year while ensuring adherence to best practice health and safety standards. The school is prepared to offer students a seamless transition to a distance learning program if deemed appropriate based on the on-going developments pertaining to COVID-19.
La Pietra is proud of its 100% college acceptance rate for our graduates, with many students accepted to top national and international colleges and universities each year. Recent graduating classes have earned over $4 million in merit scholarships for college and have been accepted to Dartmouth College, Barnard College, Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, New York University, University of California Berkeley, Vassar College, Yale University, Savannah College of Art and Design, and many more.
We are committed to keeping a La Pietra education affordable and accessible for all qualified girls. Approximately 50 percent of our students receive financial aid each year, demonstrating that La Pietra is committed to creating an inclusive, socio-economically diverse student body. During the 2019-2020 school year, La Pietra awarded almost $600,000 in need-based financial aid.
At La Pietra, all girls are leaders. Every La Pietra student has the opportunity to develop her confidence and leadership skills through our robust leadership programs, including Peer Leaders, Delegates, Big Sister program, student government, student-led clubs, student publications, community service organizations and so much more.
