Punahou School has educated students to become the next generation of leaders and innovators for nearly 180 years. Through world-class academic and co-curricular programs from kindergarten through grade 12, we encourage students to cultivate their interests and talents, aim for their highest potential and become positive forces in the world.
Innovative Learning Environments
In recent years, Punahou has rebuilt or renovated a significant part of its campus to offer cutting-edge, reimagined learning environments. These thoughtfully planned, technologically advanced and highly sustainable facilities offer indoor and outdoor spaces that allow students to develop skills necessary to thrive in the 21st century.
Preparing Students for a Changing World
In our specialized facilities and innovative design and fabrication labs, students have access to high-tech equipment, enabling them to design authentic solutions to real-world problems.
Punahou’s primary mission is to shape students into educated, capable and caring people who have the knowledge and skills to succeed. In addition to its longstanding excellence in core subjects such as math, English, and science, Punahou also prepares students for the changing world and careers of the future by teaching students how to be adaptable, creative, collaborative and innovative.
Our teachers and administrators distinguish themselves not only with their educational credentials and experience, but with their commitment and dedication to students and the School. Caring faculty show students that their ideas and opinions matter, and it is through a child’s interests, questions and creativity that they shape a path with confidence and independent thought.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Through a thoughtful and research-based curriculum, students develop the capacity for critical and creative thought, while learning how to be adaptable, creative, collaborative and innovative.
Punahou is committed to creating a diverse educational community rooted in equity and inclusion as fundamental human rights. We seek ways to create an environment in which the identities and cultural backgrounds of our families, students and employees are valued and respected by the entire Punahou community.
Students are admitted to Punahou based on their potential to thrive, not their family’s ability to pay. Punahou offers a robust financial aid program to support families who could not otherwise afford a Punahou education.
