Please do not call the main office line for admissions questions.
University Laboratory School enrolls about 450 students, comprising a cross section of Hawai‘i's diverse population, from kindergarten through grade 12. Each year 10 students are admitted to kindergarten, and 46 students are admitted to grade 6. Applications are accepted for all grade levels, but openings are rare in grades other than kindergarten and 6.
Families are informed of the opportunity to seek enrollment in the school through announcements in the public media. The application period for kindergarten and sixth grade applicants is from mid-October to mid-January. The application period for all other grade levels is from mid-October to the end of March. Application materials and timelines will be available on the school Website (www.universitylaboratoryschool.org) or by calling the school admissions line (808-956-4977) beginning in October.
Students are selected to create a student body, evenly distributed by gender that reflects the ethnic distribution of Hawai‘i and includes a broad range of student academic achievement and family socioeconomic levels. To meet these requirements, students are selected from the applicant pool by lottery. Further criteria are that parents must be willing to have their children participate in the research and development activities of ULS–CRDG and students must be willing participants.
Notifications are sent to all entry level grades (Kindergarten and 6) by late-February; non-entry levels are only notified if selected (in mid-summer).
If selected parents are required to attend an orientation so they fully understand the expectations and opportunities for their child at ULS. The vision of the University Laboratory School is that "all students graduate ready for college, work and responsible citizenship."
