A Generation on the Rise

In 2015, Kamehameha Schools embarked on SP2020 – a five-year strategic plan that would guide us toward our Vision for the year 2040: To see a thriving lāhui by putting Hawaiian learners on a path to postsecondary success. These are the stories of our progress toward cultivating Kūhanauna – a generation on the rise.

Our Organization

With tremendous strides in education, community partnerships, cultural commitment, and caring for our ‘āina, we move forward – building upon our achievements and adapting our strategies as the world changes around us.

Innovation is key to helping Kamehameha Schools address the complex challenges facing Native Hawaiians and to form a firm educational foundation for a thriving lāhui.

During the past five years, we have harnessed the vast assets and resources of our organization and the collective wisdom of our staff to ensure that we have the financial support, technological tools, and values-based policies and procedures to move the needle forward on progress.

Inspired by the vision of our beloved founder Ke Ali‘i Bernice Pauahi Bishop, our limahana share a role in shaping her vision of a vibrant future for her people. Thanks to our employees and to those who came before us, Hawaiians will continue to be uplifted by Pauahi’s legacy as we strive to cultivate Kūhanauna – a generation on the rise – for the year 2040.


Strategic Plan 2020

A message from our CEO

When we embarked on Strategic Plan 2020 five years ago, we envisioned a thriving future for Native Hawaiians. Our team immediately got to work and, together with community partners, we successfully built a strong foundation for continued growth toward Vision 2040. I commend our employee ‘ohana for contributing to our many accomplishments and for positively transforming Kamehameha Schools into the organization it is today.
