Kamehameha Schools accepting summer program applications

Current fifth- through eighth-graders may apply for Kamehameha Schools’ Explorations Series’ weeklong summer boarding programs. Each program offers an opportunity for students to turn summer into an adventure, with activities and field trips designed to introduce and expand upon their knowledge of Hawaiian cultural traditions.

Programs take place between June 8 and July 19 in a variety of locations throughout Hawaii. Applicants must not already attend a Kamehameha Schools K-12 campus program.

Kamehameha Schools also offers summer school programs at its Hawaii and Kapalama campuses for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Summer school offers enrichment programs to keep students engaged in learning. For high school students, summer school is also an opportunity to earn credits and prepare for the upcoming school year. A limited number of seats are available for current and non-Kamehameha campus students. Hawaii Kula Kauwela courses will take place from June 12 to July 10. Kapalama Summer School will run June 9 through July 18.

Applications for any of these programs must be postmarked or received by Feb. 15. For preferred options of dates, locations and course availability, applicants should complete and submit applications as soon as possible. Applications are available at ksbe.edu/admissions.
