Punahou School is a vibrant K – 12 community with roots that date back to 1841. If you’re wondering whether Punahou is right for your child, here are some reasons to consider.
Punahou has something for everyone
With a 76-acre campus, more than 3,700 students and state-of-the-art facilities, Punahou is a place of many possibilities and pathways to success. Guided by caring, accomplished teachers, students can discover and pursue their interests and talents.
A new community
The new Kosasa Community for Grades 2 – 5 includes spacious studio classrooms, expansive gardens, outdoor spaces and imaginative play structures. Our Junior School Learning Commons – complete with high-tech design and fabrication labs, innovative visual and performing arts spaces, and a collection of more than 60,000 books – offers opportunities for discovery, collaboration and creativity.
Punahou gets students ready for college
Students become resilient and independent during their journey at Punahou. Whether they are aspiring engineers, athletes, artists, scientists, musicians or any combination of those, the School paves the way for students to develop academic confidence and a strong sense of self to transition smoothly to whatever path they pursue.
Punahou is a community for life
Once a “Pun,” always a “Pun.” The education and connections made at Punahou endure past graduation, past college and even past 50th Class Reunions. If our thriving alumni community is any indication, the Punahou journey extends from kindergarten through life. No matter where graduates go, the Punahou community is never far and always there for support.
Punahou offers education within reach
Punahou accepts students based on their potential to thrive, not their family’s ability to pay. We offer financial assistance, with an average award of $10,515 per student, so that a Punahou education is possible for any student with high academic promise.
