History of Saint Louis Heights


The Hawaiian name of this region is Kalaepohaku, which translates to "hill of rocks".  The name Saint Louis was chosen based on Bishop Louis Maigret's patron saint, King Louis IX of France.

Saint Louis School and Chaminade University are both located the intersection of Waialae Avenue and 3rd Avenue. Mauka of Waialae Avenue, the road is actually named "College Walk." 

In 1955, Saint Louis School eliminated the elementary grades and renamed itself Saint Louis High School.  The campus expanded into post-secondary education with Chaminade Junior College.  The college was renamed Chaminade University of Honolulu in 1977.

Chaminade University is named after Father William Joseph Chaminade.  He was a priest during the French Revolution and he was the founder of the Society of Mary.  Religious followers are called "Marists" or "Marianists" and this is the religion which guides the two schools.

The Kaminaka Drive side of Saint Louis Heights is sometimes referred to as Chaminade Terrace.
