Students are encouraged to express themselves through art. With the many courses available, the Visual Arts curriculum helps each student find joy in creating art through a variety of ways, including two- and three-dimensional media.
Through the use of instructional gaming, children develop better decision-making skills, are more aware of the consequences of their actions, and are able to think about and sustain progress towards long-term gains. Students combine artistic and creative skills to address immediate tactical needs. Chess welcomes students who are new to chess as well as those with experience.
In kindergarten – grade 5, the reading and language arts program is an area of major emphasis. Realizing that a child’s attitude toward reading may determine how he or she regards learning in general, we strive to make reading enjoyable and interesting.

The Language Arts program in grades 6 – 8 integrates the study of literature, composition and language to improve the student’s skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Summer Orientation Programs introduce incoming students and their families to life at Punahou School, demonstrating the Punahou's commitment to teaching, learning and scholarship. This summer program aims to enhance the new student experience by providing guidance and assistance to students making academic, personal and social adjustments.
Digital Media courses are designed to educate students on the ever-changing digital world, as well as to provide hands-on experience with industry standard software and equipment. The curriculum covers a wide range of areas, so it appeals to a diverse group of students. Topics covered in Digital Media classes include digital photography, animation, audio production, video production and moviemaking.
Each summer the Punahou Athletics Department offers athletic participation opportunities in a variety of sports. Benefits of summer athletic participation include developing and/or improving skills, quality coaching and the use of athletic facilities including the Weight Room (Grades 7 – 12 only). Practice dates and times vary with each sport.

Absences for Summer Athletics should be reported to 808.943.3200.

Enrollment is limited to current and incoming Punahou students.

Emphasis is placed on individual skill building, sportsmanship, physical fitness and fun through the gradual development of gross and fine motor skills in the physical education program. The primary children receive instruction in creative movement, while swimming is added for grades 1 – 8. The program utilizes indoor and outdoor facilities for physical education and also shares the swimming pool, gymnastics room, racquetball courts and outdoor fields. Further, off-campus experiences provide unique summer sports opportunities for the students.
The science program is built upon the belief that students learn science by actively engaging in inquiries that are interesting and important to them. In learning science, students describe objects and events, ask questions, acquire knowledge, construct explanations of natural phenomena, test those explanations in many different ways and communicate their ideas to others. The experiences include learning physical science, life science, earth and space science, and science and technology. Further, students have an opportunity to engage in diverse engineering, technology and applied science courses.
From kindergarten – grade 8, students enjoy broad exposure to the arts as an integral part of the curriculum, by participating in a wide variety of summer options. The scope of opportunity includes both visual arts and performing arts.
Smartphones, tablets, Facebook, Google Maps, computers and robots all run on software applications, making coding and app development some of today's most sought-after skills. Want to discover the building blocks behind it all? Coding, robotics, engineering and design courses provide hands-on opportunities for students to begin exploring concepts as well as pursue passions and advanced topics in computer science.
Life Skills courses provide a fun, engaging opportunity for students of all ages to engage in lifelong learning. Becoming a well-rounded person includes an understanding of different cultures, possessing useful skills and habits, and understanding one's self.
Punahou Music School offers a program of private and group lessons as well as special summer classes. Most lessons and classes are held in Montague Hall. All classes are subject to cancellation if there is insufficient enrollment.

All Music School classes and lessons begin the week of Monday, June 19, 2017 and run for five weeks.

The K – 5 mathematics program is activity-based, asking children to explore, conjecture and think mathematically. The teachers provide experiences that help students make sense of mathematics, and to view and use it as a tool for reasoning and problem solving.

The Case Middle School mathematics program is designed to integrate, facilitate, and advocate for each child’s mathematics learning. Specific emphasis is placed on understanding why a mathematical principle works, as opposed to simply how it works. This is done through a variety of teaching techniques such as large and small group instruction, hands-on and other manipulative activities, investigations that are integrated across curricular strands, and appropriate technological tools and software.
The Omidyar K – 1 Neighborhood provides a caring environment in which each child’s growth, curiosity and accomplishments are supported. We believe that children:
  • Learn by exploration, inquiry and discovery
  • Should be encouraged to be creative
  • Gain a deeper understanding when experiences and subjects are integrated and connected
  • Should be encouraged to be responsible, respectful, resourceful and contributing members of a group
  • Learn through play
  • Should be encouraged to develop positive social skills and relationships
  • Learn through real life experiences and hands-on activities
  • Learn through collaboration and interaction with others
  • Learn to be self-directed by making choices
  • Learn best in a safe, supportive, trustworthy environment
  • Learn when they use and develop their large and small muscles
  • Should be encouraged to sustain and extend their natural curiosity.

Clayground
When was the last time you created something out of clay? Wouldn't it be great if you could work with clay every day? In this afternoon course students discover how easy it is to create inventive forms by learning different clay building techniques like pinching, coiling, using a slab and wheel throwing. This nurturing environment focuses on experimentation and fun rather than an end product as the course aims to heighten sensory awareness and build confidence in clay-building skills. Students create functional pieces like a place setting (bowl, plate and cup), which they can use, and explore nonfunctional artwork like creating a ceramic portrait. Students finish their projects by adding texture and color, then watch their artwork magically transform through the firing process. The artwork they create during this course could last a lifetime.

Deep Thinkers of Mathematics
Not only “math geniuses” understand new and challenging concepts at a deeper level. Anyone can grow in his or her ability to take complex ideas and apply them to solve authentic problems. Collaborative, creative problem solving is at the heart of each class session. Ambiguity is built into the course by design, so students must be willing to persevere, take risks, think outside the box, ask questions and, most importantly, be willing to “fail forward” along their journey to becoming a mathematician.

This course is open to all, but priority is given to current and new-to-Punahou students.

Design Thinking (NEW)
Design thinking, simply put, is a method used to solve a problem. Giving students a real problem to solve, as an intentional reason to use design thinking, changes the quality of the learning. Students are not learning because a teacher simply told them information they are required to remember; students are learning because they need and want to solve a problem of genuine interest. This type of design thinking is at the heart of this course, and students who are interested and committed to coming up with creative solutions to solve authentic problems are invited.

Powering the Future
Build circuits, make a motor and explore the world of electricity.

Experiment with batteries and fuel cells, and consider how to store the power of the 21st century. Research the positive and negative aspects of a variety of alternative generation possibilities such as solar, wind, geothermal and nuclear power plants.

Most of the energy used in the future will be electrical, so having hands-on experience and understanding how electricity works positions students to make informed choices, perhaps even to create advances in new energy technology. One of today’s important issues is how to move from fossil fuels to alternative energy that is consistent, safe, clean and affordable. Students research to explain the advantages and disadvantages of the most promising forms of alternative energy generation and the class debates the best ways to power the future.
