Improving the parent and guardian experience when applying their keiki to KS was an important factor that went into developing a new optimized ʻohana experience showcased within the Admissions Application ʻOhana Portal.

The new centralized, mobile-optimized platform offers a user-friendly ʻohana experience, a one-stop shop for managing one to multiple applications and helps families stay connected to important information. Families can track their application progress, upload and manage document requirements through a checklist, and sign-up for admissions events with ease. Prior to applying or while checking on their keiki's application status, ʻohana can engage in a live chat feature to address immediate questions regarding the admissions process.

If you or someone you know is interested in applying to KS, applications are due on October 18. Need kōkua? Call (808) 534-8080, email or schedule an appointment at
