Saint Francis School admits students based on academic promise and does not discriminate based on ethnicity, religion, or socio-economic status. Students come from Hawaii, the U.S. mainland, China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan to study in a safe, friendly, and academically challenging environment. Selection is based on a student’s application, supporting documents, and an assessment interview. The interview is important since it affords us the opportunity to meet you and your child.

Our major entry points for admission are Preschool, Kindergarten, sixth, seventh, and ninth grade; however, students may be admitted in other grade levels on space availability. As you explore our website and the possibilities Saint Francis School can offer your child, please do not hesitate to contact us for further assistance.
