Hālau ʻo Kapikohānaiāmālama emphasizes experiences that develop a student’s aloha for their ʻāina through interdisciplinary courses that are based in ʻike kuʻuna Hawaiʻi – traditional Hawaiian knowledge through moʻolelo - stories, mele – song, chants and ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi – Hawaiian language. Unequivocal success in the most basic of education skills (language arts, math, verbal, and science) is an expected outcome when the educational foundation is culturally rich. This four-week summer learning program is open to students entering grades K-12, including Kamehameha Schools students, students attending State of Hawaiʻi DOE, public charter schools and other private institutions. Elementary and middle school programs are full-day experiences, while high school students can elect morning, and/or afternoon or full day courses. We offer early college courses, and specialty courses like Hoʻokele Waʻa, Computer Programing & Game Design, as well as a Maker Design Studio.
