    Halau Kupukupu features more than 30 courses for students in grades K-12, including science and dual credit college courses for high school students.

Kamehameha Schools Hawaii is accepting applications for its summer Halau Kupukupu Innovations Academy.

The program is open to students entering grades K-12.


Elementary courses are full-day experiences, middle school programs include morning and full-day options, and high school courses include morning, afternoon or full-day sessions. Class sizes are limited to ensure optimal teacher-to-student ratios.

The program offers credit advancement for high school students seeking to earn required or elective credits for the 2018-19 school year.

Kamehameha Schools also offers college courses that will allow high school students the opportunity to earn college and high school credits simultaneously. It is recommended that students obtain preapproval for course credits from their home schools before registering for KS summer classes to ensure acceptance of credits earned.


An integral part of KS Hawaii, the summer academy promises to ignite passion for learning, curiosity, innovative thinking and “‘oiwi Hawaii” consciousness. In collaboration with local and global industry leaders, community practitioners, scientists, engineers and artists, a team of dynamic educators is reimagining, researching and designing learning opportunities for students in grades K-12.

The program is from June 14 to July 12. Applications are due by Feb. 15. For applications, the course catalog or more information, visit www.ksbe.edu/admissions or call 982-0033.
