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.
It’s a perfect night for a swim!
Today was out sponsor workshop. It was nice meeting all the sponsors who are awesome and willing to take care of our students. Mahalo to them!
Also, the other big event happening on campus is Relay of Life tonight. People are working hard to set up and get ready for this big event.
We are having so much fun tonight here at the beautiful Kunuiakea Stadium. Our dorms are challenging each other in fun games as we start off this school year. We are so excited to spend this first weekend together!
It’s an exciting day! Our freshmen and new upperclassmen are moving in this afternoon! We are all super excited and anxious to meet our new boarders and look forward to meeting our newest members of our Boarding ‘ohana. Although it is very hot and humid, we are all excited to get to know one another.
We’ve had a busy week getting ready and preparing for our incoming boarders, and we are so excited! We are excited to meet our 9th graders, new invitees and their parents on Sunday afternoon. Mahalo for sharing your children with us and for allowing us to be a part of their lives!
See you all soon!
To all our returning boarders and their families —welcome back and see you soon!
Last night we were graciously hosted by Mr.Kim and we were able to share a special dinner with him. We appreciate his time, energy and leadership he invested while serving here at Kamehameha Schools-Kapalama. I mua!
Such a beautiful day for a run and swim! Congratulations to all of our 9th and 10th graders for completing this awesome and challenging event!
