“We understand the incredible kuleana our families are facing today,” said Darrel Hoke, KS’ VP of Administration. “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
