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.

Say what?! KS High School Boarding is Now on Insta!

That’s right!!!


It’s finally here . . . KSK High School Boarding’s very own Instagram account!  We want to share real-time pictures of what’s happening with our students during the course of the school year and hopefully give you a better idea of what your student is involved in.  We want students, family, and friends to see what’s going on in Boarding.  The account will be managed by myself, Ke`ala Ka`upu.  Working with my DRAC Communications Committee members, Kaylen K. (KA) and Keanni V-G .(HA), we will work to capture and relay those moments in the life of a boarder.
Our username is ksboardernation.  Those of you who wish to follow us will need to “request to follow” as this is a private account.  We welcome all to follow us and also welcome positive and encouraging comments.  A cautionary note: any comments that are negative in nature will lead to the user being removed from following ksboardernation.
Come check us out on Instagram!  See you there!
