Academy students have returned after winter break to take part in G-Term, a special interim where students engage in a non-graded class before the second semester starts. Students selected courses from more than 70 options, including campus sessions, four-day experiences on O‘ahu and extended international and domestic trips.

Who better to answer Academy upperclassmen questions about college than a Punahou alumnus home for holiday break? College Previews, held annually in December, is a college fair for junior and senior students. It is hosted by the College Counseling department, PFA and the Alumni Relations office.
