In Grades 6-8, academics are structured around a comprehensive curriculum that adheres to various educational standards and includes a letter-scale grading system. Religion studies follow the Diocese of Honolulu Standards, ensuring students gain a deep understanding of religious principles and values. Language Arts are guided by the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), focusing on developing students' reading, writing, and communication skills.

Mathematics also follows the CCSS, providing a strong foundation in mathematical concepts and problem-solving techniques. The Science curriculum is based on the HCS Science Curriculum Standards, which incorporate elements of Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STREAM), aligning with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). For Social Studies, the curriculum is shaped around the National Standards for Social Studies (NCSS), offering a broad perspective on history, geography, economics, and civics.

In addition to academic courses, students are expected to complete community service hours each quarter, fostering a sense of social responsibility and community involvement. Furthermore, for those students in grades 7-8 showing advanced capabilities in Mathematics, accelerated courses in Algebra 1 and Geometry are available. These courses are self-paced, allowing students to progress at their own speed and potentially enter high school with advanced standing in mathematics.
