We are pleased to announce that our admission process for the 2017-18 school year is virtually paperless. ‘Iolani School's Online Admission Application is powered by Ravenna.
‘Iolani School is committed to enrolling qualified students from a wide range of experience and backgrounds.
To that end, we support an extensive financial aid program to assist students in their desire to attend ‘Iolani School.
While financial aid resources are limited, we make every effort to bring an ‘Iolani education within reach of all who wish to attend.
We understand that choosing an independent school is a major financial decision for many families, and we are committed to keeping tuition as affordable as possible.
Tuition covers approximately 75 percent of the cost of educating a student at ‘Iolani School with the balance coming from our endowment, fundraising and gifts.
‘Iolani School has more than 70 named scholarships, and all are awarded based on a family's financial need.
Once a student is accepted to ‘Iolani and qualifies for aid, the Financial Aid Committee assigns scholarship based on specific criteria. Students receive the scholarships each year they remain at ‘Iolani as long as they are in good standing academically and continue to qualify financially.

“Last year was my first here and I couldn’t have asked for more. I had amazing teachers and made friends, whom I’ll always cherish.”
“My experience here can hardly be summed up by what I’ve learned in classrooms. ‘Iolani has helped me form invaluable relationships, pursue passions and realize potential.”
“Our teachers are so helpful. I remember in kindergarten science, I was having a hard time feeding my cricket. Mrs. Warner showed me how, because I almost squished it.”
“The thing I like best about ‘Iolani is the friendly atmosphere. Everyone knows each other. No matter where I am on campus, there’s always a few friendly smiles from peers, teachers or coaches.”
