Our School History

Vision and innovation is built into the fabric of Mid-Pacific. From the very beginning, we led the way as innovators.

Mid-Pacific Institute was born in 1908 from the coming together of the Kawaiaha‘o Seminary for Hawaiian girls, Mills Institute for Chinese Boys, The Okumura Japanese Boarding School, and the Korean Methodist School for Boys and Girls. From its inception by Francis Damon and Mary Happer Damon, Mid-Pacific was founded on the ideals of a global worldview, and the belief that people of diverse backgrounds and cultures should come together to be a powerful voice for understanding. A birthplace for inspiring ideas that impact local and international communities.
