The Kamehameha Schools K-12 program applications for the Kapālama, Hawai‘i and Maui campuses, and for the Kipona K-12 Scholarship program, for the 2018-19 school year, are now available online. The deadline to apply is Sept. 30, 2017.

There will be one application for both the KS K-12 program and the Kipona Scholarship program, with the option to apply for either program, or both. The application process for both programs will be completely online this year, utilizing the TADS application.

Kipona is a need-based scholarship for eligible keiki who attend or are applying to a KS-eligible private school in Hawai‘i. Along with the change in the timing for its application window and the change in process, Kipona will also expand its admission points this year, giving more opportunities at different times in the child’s academic journey. Kipona admission points will mirror the admission points of the KS campus that services their areas.

The primary admission points for the Kapālama campus are kindergarten, grades 4, 7 and 9, for O‘ahu residents. West Hawai‘i, Moloka‘i, Lāna‘i, Kaua‘i, Ni‘ihau and Hāna district residents’ primary admission points are grades 7 and 9. For the Hawai‘i and Maui campuses, the primary admission points are kindergarten, grades 6 and 9. Applications for grades 10, 11 and 12 for all campuses are accepted, but spaces are limited, based on availability.
