Boarding Financial Aid

‘Iolani School is committed to enrolling qualified students from a wide range of experiences and backgrounds.

To that end, we support an extensive financial aid program to assist students in their desire to attend ‘Iolani School. 


Financial need is the difference between family resources and the educational expenses of a student. We do not award scholarships based on academic, athletic, or artistic merit. To determine a family's ability to pay tuition, we partner with Clarity Financial Aid. Their analysis helps us to objectively determine what a family is able to contribute towards educational expenses and is a critical component in our financial aid decision. Aid is granted on an annual basis to families who show financial need and is renewable each year as long as the family completes the financial aid process in a timely manner and continues to qualify.


Financial aid is not available to international students in the boarding program. All applicants must be able to furnish US tax documents. Please read over our FAQ below to ensure you have met all application requirements.
