Kamehameha Schools extended the application deadline for its K-12 programs due to evolving challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. The new K-12 program application deadline is Oct. 15, 2020, for the Kapālama, Hawai‘i and Maui campuses for the 2021-2022 school year.

Applicants may apply online at

“We understand the incredible kuleana our families are facing today,” Darrel Hoke, KS’ VP of Administration said. “The admissions process is crucial and we appreciate what ʻohana experience during their journey. By extending the deadline for admission, in addition to offering a generous financial aid package for qualified applicants who we strongly encourage to apply, families now have extra time to complete applications, submit necessary documents and ask questions throughout the process.”

Applications are available for primary admission points for:

  • Kapālama campus: kindergarten, grades 4, 7 and 9 for O‘ahu residents
  • West Hawai‘i, Moloka‘i, Lāna‘i, Kaua‘i, Ni‘ihau and Hāna district: grades 7 and 9
  • Hawai‘i and Maui campuses: kindergarten, grades 6 and 9.

For kindergarten applicants, eligible students must be born between Aug. 1, 2015, and July 31, 2016.


More information is available by calling (808) 842-8800.
