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.

DRAC dinner with Mr.Kim


Last night the DRAC Representatives and Executive Council were treated to a special dinner with our KSK Po’o Kula Mr.Kim. We were graciously hosted and enjoyed a wonderful dinner with great conversation.


Mahalo to Mr.Kim for opening his home and heart to us! We really appreciate it!


This past Friday on the hill…

We’ve been having very crazy weather lately- with hurricanes threatening to hit our islands (but thankfully we have not been hit by a hurricane so far…9 have passed us with no significant effects besides lots and lots of rain, thunderstorms and lightening shows). It was beautiful to stand in the midst of the low clouds on Friday as our heights were covered by mist…


These pictures were taken at 1pm! It was so beautiful!20150911_132532_resized
