Punahou Alumni Association

The Punahou Alumni Association (PAA) is a private nonprofit organization that exists to organize and participate in educational, social, and cultural programs that reach, connect and engage the Punahou Alumni community while supporting the core mission of Punahou School.

PAA is a private nonprofit organization, which works closely with Punahou School and the Office of Alumni Relations. The association was officially founded in 1906, though informal alumni meetings are documented as early as 1864. It has an elected Board of Directors through which its activities and services to alumni and the School are realized.

Membership is Automatic

Anyone who attended Punahou for at least one semester is already considered a member. There are no annual membership dues. Members need not have graduated from Punahou School, but must be part of a class year that has already graduated. Punahou Summer School alone does not qualify for membership.
