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.

The End is Near!

Hang in there, folks! The end of the school year 2014-2015 is fast approaching! Although many students are battling fatigue and senioritis, we are continuing to encourage all of our students to finish strong and fight all the way to the end!

Final exams are around the corner. Final exams start on Tuesday, May 19, and end on Thursday morning, May 21. Quiet hours in the dorms begin after school on Monday, May 18 for students so they can concentrate on their studies; these quiet hours end on Thursday morning after the end of the last final exam.

All underclassmen will return home to their happy families for the summer and our seniors will get ready for Baccalaureate on Saturday, May 23, and Commencement (graduation) on Sunday, May 24 at the Neal Blaisdell Center.

We wish all of our boarders a great summer, and “the skyʻs the limit!” to our seniors upon graduation! I MUA to all!
