Students in grades 5-8 are eligible to apply for Kamehameha Schools’ 2013 Explorations Series programs. Applications for the series’ three summer programs (Ho‘omaka‘ika‘i, Ho‘olauna and Kulia I Ka Pono) are now available.
The Explorations Series invites Hawaiian learners to participate in a week-long experience designed to build foundations of Hawaiian cultural knowledge, connectedness and responsibility through place-based programs.
Families are encouraged to submit their applications early to secure their preference of program dates and locations. Programs are open to all grade-level eligible students, who are not currently enrolled in a Kamehameha Schools’ K-12 campus program. The deadline to submit an application is Feb. 28.
For additional program details, including a full list of program descriptions, dates and session fees/fee waivers, visit http://apps.ksbe.edu/enrichment or call toll-free at 1-800-842-4682. Kamehameha Schools’ policy on admissions is to give preference to applicants of Hawaiian ancestry to the extent permitted by law.
Applications can be picked up at the Keaau campus admissions office or Kamehameha Schools Resource Center or downloaded via the KS admissions website at www.ksbe.edu/admissions. Or, parents may call 808-842-8800 to request that an application be mailed.
