Iolani School at 563 Kamoku Street in Honolulu, Hawaii is a private coeducational college preparatory school serving over 1800 students. Founded in 1863 by Father William R. Scott, it was the principal school of the former Anglican Church of Hawaii. It was patronized by Kamehameha IV and Queen Emma who gave the school its name in 1870. Iolani in the Hawaiian language means heavenly hawk. Today, Iolani School is administered by the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii and is one of the largest independent schools in the United States.

Early Years

On December 15, 1861, Lord Bishop Thomas Nettleship Staley arrived in Hawaii upon a joint request of Kamehameha IV and Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. The following year Kamehameha IV, a devout member of the Church of England, established the Hawaiian Reformed Catholic Church, also known as the Anglican Church of Hawaii.

In 1863, Lord Bishop Staley's companion Father Scott purchased land in Lahaina and established Luaehu School, a school for boys. When Father Scott fell ill and returned to Britain, Father George Mason was summoned by Lord Bishop Staley to administer the school. When Lord Bishop Staley, too, left the islands for Britain in 1870, Father Mason moved the school to the Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew in downtown Honolulu. It was there that the widowed Queen Emma gave the school its current name.

With the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii and annexation to the United States in 1898, the Anglican Church of Hawaii was dissolved and taken over by the Episcopal Church United States (ECUSA). Iolani School was moved to Nuuanu, transferred back to downtown Honolulu and then moved to Nuuanu a second time. It remained in Nuuanu from 1927 to 1953, when it was moved to the present Ala Wai site.

Development

Iolani School quickly grew out of its original World War II era wooden school houses on the Ala Wai campus when it began building multi-million dollar facilities in use today. In 1979, girls were admitted to the school for the first time. Iolani School further refined its program offerings with a standard college preparatory curriculum as a foundation for every student. Religion, performing and visual arts, music and athletics became integral parts of the modern Iolani School education.

Athletics

Iolani School's athletic program was founded in 1932 by Father Kenneth A. Bray. Over 900 or 70% of the student body belongs to an Iolani School athletic team in over 32 competitive sports. Iolani School is a member of the Interscholastic League of Honolulu, an athletic conference composed of Honolulu-area private schools.

Since the formation of the Hawaii High School Athletic Association, Iolani has won 74 state championships. They are:
