Pan Pacific Program

Partnership of Hawaiian Culture and Service

The Pan Pacific Program at Punahou School's Wo International Center is a three-week summer program for about 30 students from around the world, including around 10 Punahou students. International students are committed to improving their English language proficiency while learning about Hawaiian culture and Hawai‘i’s unique environment.

The program began in 1969 as a partnership between Punahou School and Keio Schools in Japan and has evolved over the years to include students from Asia and Southeast Asia (including Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam), as well as students from French Polynesia (Tahiti) and France. Students from any country in the world may apply.


The Pan Pacific Program will NOT be offered in 2017, but is currently scheduled to be offered in 2018. Check back for more information as the year draws closer.
