Welcome to Kamehameha Boarding!

Aloha mai kakou!

Welcome to the Boarding Program at Kamehameha High School Kapalama!

During the school year, nearly 385 high school students board on campus. Most of them come from the Neighbor Islands, some from O’ahu and a few from the mainland. Along with the resident staff, they form Kamehameha’s boarding community.

The Boarding Program is a quality residential learning community for Kamehameha Schools students who live on the Kapalama campus. The program is a safe and nurturing environment:

* grounded in Christian and Hawaiian value

* designed to foster student efforts to be respectful, responsible, and resourceful

* rich with opportunities for students and staff to be of service to others.

This is in keeping with the Trustees’ Mission:

Kamehameha’s Schools’ mission is to fulfill Pauahi’s desire to create educational opportunities in perpetuity to improve the capability and well-being of people of Hawaiian ancestry.


This afternoon we held our annual Makahiki on Konia Field. The weather was cool and pouli, with light showers blessing our evening. We enjoyed an afternoon of fun traditional Makahiki games and dormitory comradery.

Congratulations to Kapuaiwa Dormitory and ʻIolani Dormitory for being this yearʻs winners!
