Students entering grades K - 8 next fall can now begin to register for Hālau Kupukupu. Classes begin June 17 and are offered in two-week or four-week programs with the final class taking place on July 15. 

Hālau Kupukupu offers two summer academies based on grade levels.

  • Innovations Academy (Grades K-5): Hālau Kupukupu empowers haumāna to access, explore, and amplify their ‘ōiwi lens, a multi-generational edge, which enables our keiki to engage confidently with the world around them. Learners will sharpen their perspectives as they investigate challenges that impact our ‘āina, lāhui, and world, harnessing their unique talents to create innovative and responsible solutions and contribute to a legacy of wisdom for the future.
  • Ua Ao Academy (Grades 4-8): This summer academy offers opportunities for accelerated student advancement and success. Like the brightness of day, learners develop valuable academic and life readiness skills that illuminate each haumāna’s unique brilliance. Ua ao Hawai‘i ke ‘ōlino nei! Hawai'i shines brightly as our ‘ōpio develop mastery, experience, and character to fully engage their kuleana as ‘ōiwi Hawai‘i learners and leaders in the world.

Our guiding theme this year, ‘O ka na‘auao no ke kai lipo a ka nu‘u kea, calls us to recognize and honor our ancestral spaces from Hawai‘i to the far pillars of Kahiki, from the deepest of oceans to the highest snow-capped mountains. In doing so, we strengthen our relationship to our akua, our ‘āina, and kanaka, building partnerships and honoring our shared kinship with people of the world. By exploring, experiencing, and examining our home and our planet, we are better posed to address the global challenges we face together. 

We welcome your keiki and ‘ōpio to join us this summer for a journey of discovery as they learn and grow in innovative and exciting courses at all levels. Please register early for the course(s) of your choice as spaces tend to fill quickly. If you have any questions or mana‘o regarding our summer academies, please call 982.0033 or email
