Hālau Mauli Ola

For High School Students
High school courses are administered by Kula Kiʻekiʻe. Hālau Mauli Ola builds and extends upon the ‘ike mauli (foundational knowledge) through ways of knowing extended beyond the regular school year and to allow you to prepare for what is beyond high school through college, career, and life learning educational opportunities. The program offers credit advancement for high school students seeking to earn required and/or elective credit(s) for the 2020–2021 school year. KS also offers college courses that will allow high school students the opportunity to earn both college and high school credits simultaneously.
Registration for the 2020 summer program is handled in a tiered system with current juniors starting, followed by subsequent grade levels on the weeks that follow. See the catalog for registration windows.
