The mission of ‘Iolani School's Summer Program is to continue the tradition of leadership and academic excellence in offering students from the community and abroad an opportunity to enrich their knowledge and curiosity through engaging curriculum and interactive learning environments in order to foster lifelong learners ready for the 21st century and beyond.

'Iolani School is closely monitoring the recent COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the virus and we want you to know that our No. 1 priority at this time is the health and safety of our community. The situation is rapidly evolving with circumstances, travel alert levels and restrictions changing.

In the event that School policies or mandated travel restrictions prohibit a student from entering summer day or residential programs or they require the cancellation of registrations, we will refund all registration payments and deposits.
