Dynamic, Innovative, 21st Century Learning: Welcome to Maryknoll School

Founded in 1927, Maryknoll School is Oahu’s largest coeducational, Catholic School serving students from kindergarten through grade 12, enrolling nearly 1,400 students of diverse ethnic, geographic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Our Catholic learning environment is designed to support all our students, nearly half of whom are not Catholic. Maryknoll School has a number of need-based and non-need based scholarships available to current and newly enrolling students, and 20% of our current students receive financial aid. Since 2007, 100% of our graduating seniors have gone on to higher education.

At Maryknoll, we instill in our students the value of social responsibility and academic rigor. Our motto, Noblesse Oblige, means "To whom much is given, much is expected," and is the core of our mission. Within the context of the Catholic tradition of education, Maryknoll School educates young people in Hawaii and prepares them to make lasting contributions to society.
