The mission of Kamehameha Schools is to improve the capability and well-being of Hawaiians through education. They achieve their mission by operating an educational system serving over 6.900 students of Hawaiian ancestry at K-12 campuses on O’ahu, Maui and Hawai’i island, and at 31 preschool sites statewide. They also extend their educational reach into the community to serve over 40.000 additional learners annually through a range of programs and community collaborations.
These efforts include community charter school support and literacy enhancement programs for public school children, making KS the largest private contributor to Hawai‘i’s public school system. Their educational outreach also includes preschool, K-12 and post-high scholarships enabling Hawaiian learners to attend educational institutions outside of the KS system.
