Honoring 25 Years of Transformative Leadership
The Board of Trustees invites all members of the Punahou family to join them in expressing deep gratitude to Dr. Jim Scott ’70 for his visionary leadership and extraordinary contributions to the School through two naming opportunities.
James Kapae‘alii Scott ’70 Playground will be located on the future grades 2 – 3 side of the Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Community, mirroring Barwick Playground on the grades 4 – 5 side of the community.

Reaffirming Punahou’s connection to its historical, geographical and spiritual center – the fresh waters of Ka Punahou – has been a hallmark of Scott’s tenure. The Kosasa Community celebrates that connection in a tangible way through its thoughtful incorporation of the New Spring into the design of its outdoor environments. This playground will always ring with the sound of children’s laughter as they grow and learn near this symbol of the School’s renewal.
James Kapae‘alii Scott ’70 Endowed Financial Aid Fund
Broadening access to a Punahou education for all of Hawai‘i’s brightest and most talented children has been a priority during Scott’s tenure. As a beneficiary of financial aid in his own youth, Scott understands how transformative this education can be and how important it is to remove the financial barriers that might prevent a child of great potential from attending Punahou. This endowed financial aid fund will give the gift of a Punahou education to such students in perpetuity.
