Kawaiahaʻo Church School's Summer Program has limited spaces available.  We are allowing our in-house families to apply through March 31, 2022, before accepting guest applications.  Please email admissions@kawaiahaoschool.org, or call us at (808)585-0622 to ensure spaces are available before submitting your application. 

Kawaiahaʻo Church School offers programs for keiki from 3 years old through 6th grade! (Our 2-3 year old program is a year-round program).

This summer’s program will focus on ecosystems of Hawaiʻi based on curriculum from Kamehameha Publishing. Through hands-on S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities, and Montessori project-based learning, keiki will learn more about ecosystems from the mountains cloud forest to the oceans coral reefs. They will learn about how a healthy relationship between the ecosystems is important for both people and animals.

Kawaiahaʻo Church School’s Summer Program is great way to continue to give keiki exposure to ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian language), teach keiki about unique plants and wildlife native to Hawaiʻi, and to share Hawaiian culture and values. Keiki will be learning in a safe, indoor-outdoor classroom environment.
