High School

Welcome to the High School!

Maryknoll High School is a welcoming and nurturing community that encourages students to grow both academically and personally through forward-thinking classes and challenging extracurricular activities. Maryknoll School is proud to offer the Mx Scholar Programs, an innovative, advanced curriculum that designed to encourage each students’ interests and passions, and an exciting partnership with Hawai‘i Pacific University that enables students to have a running start toward their four-year college degree while in high school.

Where Exceptional Young Minds Thrive

Maryknoll School’s Mx Scholar Programs offer a focus in high school on industries that are driving the careers of tomorrow. Students gain both depth and breadth in their field(s) of choice and graduate from high school with outstanding college preparation, internship experience and one-on-one mentoring that has nurtured their passions.

From learning the ropes as a freshman to gearing up for college as a senior, the Mx Scholar Programs at Maryknoll School offer an experience like no other.

Where else can students learn to fly a plane before learning to drive a car, design a better hospital ER, forecast the Chinese stock market and sculpt the next David — all before study hall?

Internships, professional mentors and visiting mainland professors offer vast opportunities far beyond the usual AP courses and college counseling.

The Mx Scholar Programs are for students who want to make the most of their high school years by exploring their interests, finding their niche and tapping into their talents. Your child can choose one or more areas of interest, and let their passion drive their potential.
