What is Punahou looking for in a student?
Punahou welcomes avid learners who embrace school, life and the world as one big classroom. Our Admission team carefully considers the whole child, balancing prior school performance and test scores with an individual’s personal interests, abilities and learning style.
For grades 6 – 12, we are interested in the applicant’s involvement in activities beyond academics. We are seeking qualities of citizenship and moral character, along with the ability to connect positively with peers. Punahou is committed to attracting a diverse community of students from different economic and ethnic backgrounds.
