The coordination between advising, the colleges, and within the colleges themselves is a bit disastrous at times, but with the small classes you can bet that the teachers will know who you are when you see them in the street. The classes are more personal and the teachers are very approachable. I don't question the quality of education in at least 95% of the classes I've taken there. Being that it is a private institution however, HPU does have its dictatorial quirks. The Kalamalama college newspaper is filled with censored propaganda, and the President is just as distanced from his students and faculty as was Bush with the rest of the educated public. Eh, hem. . . Retirement? This University has too much potential for certain administrators to be liberally and constantly messing with the programs without actually even seeing the classes happen themselves. For anyone enrolling, I highly recommend planning your entire degree yourself with some leeway for changes in course requirements, as it does tend to happen often. In the end, you have to make the best out of it and not treat college like you're still in high-school. That stuff's for UH.

The application process is very stressful and arduous. While the school itself is a superb facility, it is very hard to get into, especially for Kindergarten. For Kindergarten, your child has to score 90-95 percentile in the individual assessment. Teacher recommendations have to be stellar. Your child has to show maturity, independence, perfect behavior, & interaction with other kids. Your child can't have a bad day for both assessment days. Admissions should be more upfront in what they want for Kindergarteners. I later learned that Punahou looks for a 90-95 percentile in: Verbal, Nonverbal (reasoning using nonverbal means), Spatial (visual perception), Memory (visual/auditory) and Quantitative (number concepts). If you wish to read a more detailed account of my experiences in applying to Punahou, please read my blog at punahoupuns.blogspot.com. or punahouadmission.blogspot.com. It contains helpful information and tips for parents applying to Punahou School. Good Luck.
Med-Assist program is only 9 months long and I was able to earn my diploma and work almost immediately after Externship. The Externship placement is provided by the program and my Externship site hired me. I can also take the National Certification and intend to do so.
Everything was amazing with the Academy. Very welcoming and the students are well trained. I actually reconized the products they use in house. I will be back next month.
