The Distinction in Global Education is granted to Punahou Academy students who demonstrate focused study, passion, and mastery in global education.
Beginning early in the Academy, students should begin work on global competency requirements. The Distinction process is a valuable opportunity that recognizes outstanding achievements in global knowledge, skills, and dispositions, while receiving a high level of mentorship from Wo International Center directors.
Students may indicate interest in a Centers Distinction at any time, though it is advised to begin thinking about the competencies and required evidence early during the Academy experience. Progress toward the Distinction will be monitored, reviewed, and awarded by Center Directors upon completion of requirements.
Final portfolio will require at least three pieces of evidence demonstrating growth toward each competency.
