FOUNDED FOR CHANGE “New times call for new methods.�

~ Blessed William Joseph Chaminade

When Father Chaminade founded the Marianists, he believed education and community service were the best ways to rebuild a broken community. Today, we carry on his vision of educating for social justice and service. We believe that if our world is to be peaceful, our students must become global citizens and learn alongside individuals from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures.


OUR MARIANIST EDUCATIONAL VALUES •  •  •  •  • 

Educate for adaptation and change Educate for service, justice and peace Educate for formation in faith Provide an integral quality education Educate in family spirit

WE ARE THE SILVERSWORDS! The illustration seen throughout this book depicts our mascot, the Silversword. Known in Hawaiian as the 'Ahinahina, it�s a determined native plant found only on Hawai'i�s highest volcanic slopes. Much like our students, the Silversword not only survives in tough environments, it thrives — overcoming all odds to grow and bloom.
