10 Waipahu High Seniors Qualify for 2021 US Presidential Scholars Program




The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors. In 1979, the program was extended to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in the visual, creative and performing arts. In 2015, the program was again extended to recognize students who demonstrate ability and accomplishment in career and technical education fields. Each year, up to 161 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the nation's highest honors for high school students.


Of the 3.6 million students expected to graduate from high school this year, more than 5,200 candidates qualified for the 2021 awards determined by outstanding performance on the College Board SAT or ACT exams. Of these high performing students, 64 candidates were identified from public and private schools in Hawaii. 10 of the 64 are Waipahu High School Marauders!!


Congratulations to our 10 Waipahu High School seniors! Best wishes to all of you on your continued journey forward. Go Marauders!!!
