More than 40 graduates talked to the different high school divisions; 31 shared their experiences at mainland colleges, while 11 talked about what it is like to go to a college in Hawaii.

Students met with alumnae who graduated the year before them, allowing them to catch up with friends.

“I enjoyed seeing graduates of the Academy and (hearing about) their college journey,” junior Kacey Chong said. “It was nice to see my friends that have already graduated.”

Graduates were asked about the transition from an all-girls high school to a co-ed college. Academy students also asked about the types of struggles graduates have been through.
