The Clarence T.C. Ching PUEO Program at Punahou School was recognized by the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) as a 2016 Excellence in Summer Learning Award winner. Punahou President Jim Scott ’70, PUEO Director Carl Ackerman, PUEO Assistant Director Kylee Mar and others received the award during NSLA’s national conference in Seattle, Washington, on Oct. 25.


PUEO was one of four summer programs, which are considered from elementary schools to universities, selected as a winner. The recipients were chosen for demonstrating excellence in accelerating academic achievement and prompting healthy development for low-income students.

The organization listed PUEO’s winning strategies as:

  • sense of community forged among diverse group of students that supports them throughout life
  • seven years of summer immersion and year-round programming that usher students through the formative years of middle and high school
  • belief in the power of partnerships between private and public schools to help students achieve their goals.
