Hawaiʻi Island's Oldest Private School

St. Joseph School, the Big Island’s oldest private school, was founded by Fr. Charles Pouzot, SS.CC., on April 1, 1869.

Since its founding, St. Joseph School has become a well-respected comprehensive institution of Catholic education—the only Catholic school on Hawaiʻi Island serving students in preschool through grade twelve. Although Catholic by tradition, St. Joseph School accepts a wide range of students from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds.
