Applications for Kamehameha Schools Maui’s new summer school program, Hālau ʻo Kapikohānaiāmalama, are now available online. The deadline to apply is Feb. 15, 2017.

Hālau ʻo Kapikohānaiāmalama opens in the summer of 2017, giving the KS Maui campus its first summer school program since 2008.

The program will run from June 14 to July 12, in two sessions, for middle school students going into grades 6-8.

Translated to mean “the life source that feeds and nourishes,” Hālau ʻO Kapikohānaiāmalama will empower learners through rigorous and relevant learning experiences that are culturally-connected, ʻāina-based and ʻŌiwi STEAM-focused.

The full-day program, running from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., will offer courses that range from subject and interest areas such as soil ecology, horticulture and graphic design to video production, culinary arts, app design and entrepreneurship. There will also be courses that have an ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi intensive focus as a commitment to the learning of the Hawaiian language.


Hālau ʻo Kapikohānaiāmalama is a program for KS and non-KS students, which includes snacks, lunch and optional bus transportation.


Kamehameha Schools is a private, educational, charitable trust founded and endowed by the legacy of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop.

Kamehameha Schools operates a statewide educational system enrolling over 6,900 students of Native Hawaiian ancestry at K-12 campuses on Oʻahu, Maui and Hawaiʻi and 30 preschools statewide.

Over 41,500 additional learners and caregivers are served each year through a range of other Kamehameha Schools outreach programs, community collaborations and financial aid opportunities in Hawaiʻi and across the continental United States.


Income generated from its endowment portfolio of Hawaiʻi real estate and other investments funds the Schools’ educational mission. More information can be found at
