Mid-Pacific Institute was incorporated in 1908 through the combination of Kawaiaha'o Seminary for Girls (established in 1864) and Mills Institute for Boys (established in 1892). Mid-Pacific is an independent college-preparatory day school of 1,570 students in preschool through grade 12. Situated on a spacious 40-acre campus in the beautiful Manoa Valley, it is one of the nation’s most dynamic and forward-looking independent schools.
Mid-Pacific strives to equip students with the skills and attitudes necessary to approach college, career, and life as imaginative, curious, and adaptable self-starters and problem-solvers. The school’s progressive, student-centered approach recognizes each individual’s learning style.
Offerings in the High School include the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, Mid-Pacific Exploratory (MPX) Program, and technology integration throughout the curriculum. Among the many defining features of Mid-Pacific is its renowned School of the Arts, a pre-professional training program in grades 7-12 that complements the college-preparatory curriculum with rigorous conservatory-style training in several disciplines in the arts. MidPacific Athletics also fields more than 100 teams, and more than 63% of students play at least one sport.
