Love God. Love Others. Challenge Yourself.

The Upper School program is designed to be the capstone of a well-rounded, rigorous, and relevant education. The curriculum challenges students to develop according to the schoolwide goals. As a university preparatory school, Hanalani promotes academic and personal excellence. As a distinctively Christian school, our students establish a Christian worldview, Christian character, and 21st Century Skills to be effective community leaders. With diligence, determination, and self-discipline, students are given the tools to be successful as they pursue their dreams and future. Beyond the 21st Century Skills and core classes, our students have vast opportunities in co-curricular activities and STEAM-focused courses.
