Private schools tuition rising

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Most of Hawai`i's larger private schools are planning tuition hikes for the upcoming academic year. They're planning tuition increases of between 3 percent and 7 percent, as more schools are seeing a rebound in enrollment.

Tuition at Iolani School, Mid-Pacific Institute and Punahou School will hit the $20,000 mark for the first time. Officials at schools that are raising tuition cite higher personnel costs.

Hawai`i Preparatory Academy in Waimea remains the state's most expensive private school. The school passed the $20,000 mark several years ago. High school tuition for day students next school year will be $23,100, a 3.6 percent increase.

Island Pacific Academy in Kapolei will reduce tuition by 5 percent. Saint Louis School in Honolulu will keep its tuition flat.
