Punahou bids a warm mahalo to its faculty and staff who are celebrating milestone anniversaries or retiring from Punahou this year. We are deeply appreciative for their commitment and dedication to enrich our School and community. Punahou has greatly benefited from their longstanding contributions.
Twenty-one Punahou seniors have been selected as candidates for the Presidential Scholars Program, established in 1964 to recognize exceptional graduating high school students. The selection process begins with SAT or ACT scores, followed by essays, self-assessments and transcripts.
Congratulations to the 21 Punahou seniors selected as 2023 National Merit Semifinalists in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. They were among 57 Hawai‘i high school seniors selected in honor of their academic ability and potential for collegiate success.
Punahou welcomes Gustavo Carrera as Academy Principal, serving faculty and students in grades 9 – 12. He follows former Academy Principal Emily McCarren as she departs to become the head of Keystone Academy in Beijing.
