Bridge The Tuition Gap

"Having an 'Iolani education is such a precious thing...I promise to make the most of this opportunity."

- Class of 2022 Stone Scholarship Recipient

Tuition covers just 67% of the total cost of an 'Iolani education. This means that every student on campus receives a "hidden scholarship" of $12,000.

We rely on unrestricted gifts from our community to bridge this tuition gap. Unrestricted gifts help us to:
  • Maintain small classes led by excellent teachers;
  • Provide access to 'Iolani through increased financial aid and scholarship opportunities;
  • Make investments in world class academic and extracurricular programs that give our students an advantage in college admissions and prepare them for life after 'Iolani.
When you make an unrestricted gift to the school, and it is combined with gifts from others, the result is an unparalleled experience for all students that creates the foundation for an incredible future.

We are very excited to report that, thanks to the support of hundreds of donors, we've surpassed our initial goal of $12,000 many times over! We've received more than $145,000 in gifts and pledges, enough to bridge the tuition gap for twelve students. Mahalo to all who have participated.
