About St. Andrew’s Schools
For more than 150 years, St. Andrew’s Schools has developed tomorrow’s courageous and compassionate leaders. In 1867, the great royal Hawaiian leader, Queen Emma Kaleleonālani, a visionary and transformational thinker, established St. Andrew’s Priory, the oldest girls’ school in Hawaiʻi. An enduring testament to her towering vision to educate the Hawaiian people, The Priory has become St. Andrew’s Schools and grown to include The Prep, a K-6 boys’ school, and Queen Emma Preschool (The Preschool), for boys and girls ages two to five.
Our personalized educational program allows students to uncover their unique strengths, passions, and interests through discovery, practice, creation, and self-reflection. Our emphasis on social emotional, spiritual and cognitive learning sets the stage for children to cultivate healthy habits of mind, body and spirit that positions them to live a life of learning and good health.
Our K-12 education program in downtown Honolulu is the only coordinate school system in Hawaiʻi. We offer two single-sex schools on the same campus. Our girls (The Priory, K-12) and boys (The Prep, K-6) are educated separately in the classroom yet can socialize together on campus. Coordinate schools recognize that the social and emotional experiences that children have in schools shapes their learning – and ultimately affects how they think and act. By understanding and embracing the differences between boys and girls, we create the conditions for all students to learn and grow. Our students readily venture past societal expectations or stereotypes to reach their full promise. Students learn deeply, stay curious, are hopeful about the future, and understand how to lead themselves and others with a compassionate and courageous heart.
