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.

Move In Day!

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.

Welcome boarders!

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!
