In grades 3-5, academics are structured around a comprehensive and diverse curriculum, adhering to various educational standards. Religion is taught based on the Diocese of Honolulu Standards, providing students with a foundation in faith and ethics. Language Arts follows the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), focusing on developing reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Mathematics also adheres to the CCSS, emphasizing problem-solving, reasoning, and engagement with complex mathematical concepts.

Science education is guided by the HCS Science Curriculum Standards, which integrate Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STREAM), aligning with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This approach fosters a holistic understanding of science and its applications.
