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.

After we received the “all clear” that Hurricane Lane was no longer a threat, our boarders were treated to some gym time to work off their time stuck safe in the dorms.
Our dorm advisor, Mr. Rabut, graciously opened the gym for our students to work out and get their wiggles out.
Our students also participated in fun evening activities and games for their weekend activities. Mahalo to Mr.Lum and Ms. Punua for engaging our students in fun activities. Also, mahalo to all the dorm advisors for making lemonade out of lemons and doing fun activities with their captive audiences in the dorms so help pass the time and bond with their dorm mates.
On Saturday the young men of Kaleiopapa Dorm visited the newly unveiled statue of their namesake, King Kamehameha III- Kauikeaouli Kaleiopapa.
What a great experience for our ‘opio!
Congratulations to our graduating seniors! We celebrated them last night with a special dinner and slideshow.
We wish them the best of luck and will miss their presence here on campus!
They are counting down the days…16 more left!
The school year is winding down but weʻre still having fun here in Boarding. Here, our Kaleiopapa Dorm mates are enjoying some bonding time in Kekuhaupiʻo gym and taking a study break.
