Applications invited for Kamehameha preschools
Kamehameha Schools preschool applications are now being accepted for the 2014-2015 school year. Families applying must be current residents of the state of Hawaii and all applications must be received by the Kamehameha Schools (KS) Admissions Department no later than Jan. 31.
This year, KS will be applying a new preschool entry age requirement in alignment with the Department of Education kindergarten-age requirement and the elimination of the junior kindergarten program that will take effect during the 2014-15 school year. New students applying for KS preschools for the upcoming school year must be 3 by July 31, 2014 to be eligible for the 3-year-old program and 4 years old by July 31, 2014 to be eligible for the 4-year-old program.
To achieve a seamless transition from the KS program, in the next two years, KS will be creating a 5-year-old program to accommodate the needs of those keiki who will complete the 4-year-old program in 2015. Those families will have an option to enroll in the 5-year-old program before they are eligible for DOE kindergarten in 2016.
For more information about applying to KS preschools and information about the preschool program, visit www.ksbe.edu/admissions or call 842-8800. Neighbor Island applicants may call toll-free 1-800-842-4682, ext. 28800. Information and help with the application process is also available at the KS Resource Center-East Hawaii, 935-0116, open Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
