About HAIS
Founded in 1969, the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools (HAIS) is an organization of member schools that advocates on behalf of independent education in Hawaii and participates actively in the educational dialogue in our community. It provides services that strengthen our individual schools, and it supports their efforts to achieve educational quality and excellence for students. HAIS facilitates collaborative efforts among member schools on issues of mutual concern as well as partnerships to address shared needs.

To this end, HAIS assists member schools by:
  • Promoting choice as an important community value and assisting parents in learning about independent education
  • Preserving independence by maintaining a vigilant presence at the Legislature thus allowing member schools to pursue their missions unencumbered by undue regulations
  • Providing member resources
  • Perpetuating school renewal through accreditation
  • Proposing new models for teaching and learning
  • Promoting professionalism and collaboration
  • Presenting premium programs
