KILOHANA WAIʻANAE | KILOHANA WEST HAWAIʻI
The KS Kilohana Wai‘anae and KS Kilohana West Hawai‘i programs are 5-week summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) programs, rooted in Hawaiian values, with intensive support in math. Through a project-based learning approach, students will engage in a range of learning experiences to develop skills and knowledge necessary for success in college and career. There are specific residency and grade level requirements for this program (see below).
WHO MAY APPLY?
Kilohana Waiʻanae: Non-KS students entering grade 7 in Fall 2016 and who reside on the Wai‘anae Coast of O‘ahu.
Kilohana West Hawaiʻi: Non-KS students entering grades 7 or 8 in Fall 2016 and who reside between the West Hawai‘i boundaries of Honokaʻa to Kealakekua.
Attention: Applicants to Grades 6 – 9
As we shared at the recent Parent Orientation that you attended, Kamehameha is one of 32 schools (national and international) participating in the development of a Character Skills Assessment (CSA) under the leadership of the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and the Secondary School Admissions Test Board (SSATB). Participating schools are asked to have their current applicants to grades 6-9 try-out the CSA pilot test. We are especially excited to have our Hawaiian children included in the development of this test! Please click on the CSA icon to get more information about the project.
Because Kamehameha applicants do not take the SSAT, we will send parents the link to the pilot test via email next month (February) after their child’s application goes to committee. As a reminder, participation in the pilot test is optional (research purposes only) and WILL NOT affect your child’s application to Kamehameha Schools. However, your child’s participation will be very helpful to the development of this test. Mahalo!
