Why La Pietra?

The All-Girls’ Advantage at La Pietra

Why La Pietra? Since its earliest days, La Pietra has been a place where young women have flourished in a supportive learning community led by a vision that values each girl’s unique journey. La Pietra has always believed that every girl comes with unlimited potential and it is our privilege to help unlock each girl’s potential. La Pietra’s reputation as being the leading choice in all-girls’ education has drawn Hawaii’s families for more than 50 years. Families choose La Pietra because they want to give their daughter the education she deserves.


While families may initially consider La Pietra for other reasons, they soon appreciate the benefits of choosing a single-gender environment and the all-girls’ advantage offered at La Pietra.

National research confirms what we have known since our inception – that a single-gender educational environment is better for young women. La Pietra is recognized for its innovative and dynamic academic and extracurricular programs focusing on how girls learn and grow best. Each girl is her own person at La Pietra. Our goal is to help our girls find their voice and develop the confidence to use it.

As a single-gender school, La Pietra offers an academic and social environment that empowers young women leaders, where girls can take risks, discuss issues pertinent to young women, and develop positive self-confidence. Everything we do is geared to educating young women – from our teaching strategies and curriculum, to our arts, athletics, and co-curricular program – to lead a life of achievement in college and beyond.

The culmination of our students’ journey is celebrated each year when we graduate young women who know how to think critically, lead confidently, be creative and curious, and competently navigate the rapidly changing world.
