Kamehameha Schools offers a variety of campus- and community-based learning opportunities from Explorations Hoʻomākaʻikaʻi and Kilohana to summer school courses on each of its three campuses.
Starting Jan. 2, families can apply for a variety of unique learning opportunities for their keiki this summer.
Serving Native Hawaiian learners from across the globe for over 50 years, Kamehameha Schools’ much-celebrated Explorations Hoʻomāka‘ika‘i is a one-week summer boarding program on our Kapālama campus that offers a hands-on Hawaiian culture-based learning experience to incoming sixth and seventh graders enrolled at schools other than KS.
The community-based Kilohana is an innovative five-week program that combines cultural experiences with inquiry- and project-based learning to help students develop 21st century skills in math and literacy while strengthening their Hawaiian identity. Offered to students enrolled at schools other than KS, the program is available on Hawai‘i Island, Moloka‘i, O‘ahu and Kaua‘i.
For families wanting more of a class setting, KS offers summer school courses with an emphasis on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) at each campus.
Eligibility and deadlines vary by program. Visit ksbe.edu/summer for more information.
