Helping Your Children Thrive
Throughout every child’s educational journey, parents must adapt and grow with children as they become more confident, needing parents less in some ways yet more in others. Despite this ever-expanding landscape, parents remain important partners in learning all the way through high school. But how can parents best help kids thrive, and what is right at which ages and stages?
The transition to college has long been one of the more difficult rites of passage, and there’s growing concern among colleges nationwide that many students, while prepared academically, are not ready emotionally to deal with the challenges of attending college and living away from home.
Navigating College Admissions
No doubt, applying to college is stressful, with so many questions and so much information to sift through. We interviewed Punahou’s college counseling staff – director Myron Arakawa ’66 and associate directors Christopher Obenchain and Ryan Scudder – to offer Academy students and parents tips on how best to navigate college admissions.
