At Kamehameha Schools Kapālama, our vision is to inspire our students to hoʻōla lāhui – to invigorate our Native Hawaiian community. We help our students identify and strive to be the best versions of themselves so that they can become the future ʻōiwi leaders Hawaiʻi needs. That is the legacy of greatness our kūpuna have left for us. This is our kāhea. I mua Kamehameha!
