Admission Events

There are so many things that make Punahou a unique and special place. At the heart of all that we do is the people, our campus, and the intersection of both that allow us the benefit of providing a vast array of opportunities to our students. The admissions team is eager to share our school with your family through a variety of in-person and online events. Attendance at our events are optional and do not impact the admissions decision.

Additional events will be added throughout the admissions season, please check back periodically for new events.
