Commencement on the Mid-Pacific campus is known for beautiful mountain views, flowers and smiling grads. Here are a few images from past ceremonies.
The 2016-2017 school year officially draws to a close on Saturday, May 27, as 214 Mid-Pacific seniors will receive their diplomas at Commencement at 5 p.m. on campus.
Baccalaureate services will take place Friday at Central Union Church.
Mid-Pacific merged with Epiphany School in 2004 to bring the elementary grades to its Manoa campus. The Class of 2017, Ka Ulu Pueo, is the very first Kindergarten to high school graduating class. Dr. Edna Hussey, Preschool & Elementary School Principal, will wish the grads a fond aloha as commencement speaker.
2017 is noteworthy in several respects:
99.5 percent of grads will attend a college or university.
86 percent will attend a mainland or international college or university. 14 percent will stay in Hawaii for college.
Scholarships Awarded as of May 16, 2017: 165 students have received 492 scholarships, totaling more than $5.5 million.
