In Punahou’s dynamic and attentive learning environment, students have opportunities and encouragement to determine their own journey. When encouraged to try new ideas or experiences and take charge of their own learning, students open up meaningful pathways for exploration and growth.
SENSE OF PLACE
Built on the lands of Ka Punahou, named for the spring at the center of campus, the sense of place, of belonging, is an integral part of the learning experience. The spring represents self-reflection and self-renewal, and a shared duty to protect and preserve the land.
The city, the island, the state and the global community are embraced as one big classroom, leading students to embrace opportunities to recognize their worth and potential in an expansive worldview.
For every Punahou student, the path looks different. By the time students graduate, they’re more than ready to thrive no matter what they choose to do next.
CLIMATE OF CARE
Students have multiple touchpoints with adults across campus. Deans, advisors, faculty and counselors act as full-time listeners, mentors, advocates and communication partners.
