Discover the possibilities at Hanalani Schools. Nestled on six beautiful acres in Mililani, Hanalani has nurtured, challenged and equipped students from pre-K through 12th grade for success in both college and life for over 65 years. We seek to enrich the whole child—mentally, physically, and spiritually—and develop successful leaders within their future careers, communities, and families. High-quality programs challenge students to focus on three foundational pillars: core knowledge/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math), critical skills, and Christian character.

Core Knowledge

We describe Hanalani’s approach to teaching core knowledge as Academics Plus. We believe to effectively succeed in life after graduation, students need to engage in learning beyond the walls of the classroom. Our students regularly experience off-campus learning around the island, as well as on trips abroad. Co-curricular opportunities, especially through various teams—in athletics, arts and activities—enrich our students’ lives with real life connections and leadership opportunities.

Critical Skills

As we prepare our keiki for jobs that may not yet exist, critical skills are the foundation of their development as successful leaders. These six skills are creativity & adaptability, critical & analytical thinking, citizenship, collaborative leadership, effective communication (written, oral, digital and arts), digital citizenship, and cultural competence.

Christian Character

Our last foundational pillar, Christian character, focuses on character development of our students. They are taught to love God and others. Our students deal with others through compassion, kindness, empathy, integrity, honesty and other relational virtues critical to successful leadership.

Our students challenge themselves to excellence in all that they do. In grades K3-6, our Lower School program offers a safe and nurturing environment. Lower School program highlights include a nationally- recognized student government program, champion Elementary Science Olympiad team, and more!

In grades 7–12, our Upper School program promotes excellence in academics and character development through a well-rounded, relevant education. Going beyond the classroom, students have vast opportunities.
