Kamehameha Hawaiʻi is here to support each student in finding and achieving their unique purpose and kuleana. At Kamehameha Hawaiʻi, haumāna co-create their future vision. We support students in uncovering pathways to achieve their dreams and developing their ʻŌiwi Edge - a strong ancestral foundation that shapes their agency, adaptability, and well-being, giving them a competitive advantage in their postsecondary journey. Our graduates excel at top-tier universities both locally in Hawai’i and across the continent. 

Our students are held to the highest academic expectations. Through a rigorous Hawaiian Culture-Based Education(HCBE) approach, we teach our haumāna to explore innovative solutions to real-world problems and to realize their academic potential through an ‘ōiwi lens.

Students can enhance their education beyond the classroom with engaging extracurricular athletics and activities programs! We offer haumāna opportunities in leadership, sports, academics, community service, culture, and arts. This includes opportunities to travel and represent Kamehameha Hawaiʻi on global stages and across our pae ʻāina. Our athletic teams are consistently among Hawaiʻi Islands best, winning 13 BIIF titles last year alone.
