With over 95 percent of its seniors on all three of its campuses accepted to colleges and universities throughout the country and internationally, Kamehameha Schools’ firm commitment to Native Hawaiian students continues to grow. Well-prepared alumni graduate from these post-secondary schools at a rate greater than their state and national peers in the sciences, arts and humanities as “good and industrious men and women.”
Over its 128-year history, Kamehameha Schools has graduated more than 25,000 students from its three campuses. This number doesn’t include the thousands impacted by community education programs and millions in scholarships it awards each year. Underscoring its mission and dedication to play a significant role in a thriving lāhui, Kamehameha Schools will set course this fall to further improve educational outcomes that lead to post-secondary success and career readiness for Native Hawaiian students throughout the state.
Through a network of Native Hawaiian schools, students statewide will receive a world-class, culture-based education on its three campuses and through Native Hawaiian charter and immersion schools who are part of this network. Kamehameha’s commitment to helping these learners succeed can only be accomplished through vital partners, programs, and collective impact approaches that serve its learners in areas of greatest socioeconomic need.
Within a generation of 25 years, Kamehameha Schools envisions a thriving lāhui, where its learners are prepared for post-secondary success, rooted in Hawaiian and Christian values, and lead and contribute to their communities, locally and globally.
