Ap­pli­ca­tions avail­able for KS Hawaii’s Ha­lau Kupukupu

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - COMMUNITY -

Kame­hameha Schools Hawaii cam­pus is now ac­cept­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for its in­no­va­tive take on sum­mer school.

Ha­lau Kupukupu Sum­mer In­no­va­tions Academy is a four-week learn­ing ad­ven­ture that en­gages stu­dents in fun, hands-on ex­pe­ri­ences in and out of the class­room. As ac­tion re­searchers, stu­dents take field trips, learn from com­mu­nity ex­perts and ex­plore the rich out­door learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment of Moku o Keawe (Hawaii Is­land).

The pro­gram of­fers ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties that in­spire pas­sion for learn­ing and en­able young learn­ers to be suc­cess­ful and pre­pared for the next school year.

“An in­te­gral part of Kame­hameha Schools Hawaii, our sum­mer academy prom­ises to ig­nite pas­sion for learn­ing, cu­rios­ity, in­no­va­tive think­ing and a deeper sense of Hawai­ian iden­tity,” said Joy Motta, Ha­lau Kupukupu po‘o kumu (prin­ci­pal). “In col­lab­o­ra­tion with lo­cal and global in­dus­try lead­ers, com­mu­nity prac­ti­tion­ers, sci­en­tists, en­gi­neers, and artists, our team of dy­namic ed­u­ca­tors is re-imag­in­ing, re­search­ing and de­sign­ing in­cred­i­ble learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents in grades K–12.”

Ideal ap­pli­cants should be com­mit­ted to full at­ten­dance and be will­ing to try some­thing new when it comes to learn­ing. The pro­gram is from June 15-July 13. Ap­pli­ca­tions are due by Feb. 15, though fam­i­lies are en­cour­aged to ap­ply early as spa­ces are limited.

Cur­rent KS Hawaii stu­dents should reg­is­ter us­ing KS Con­nect.

Non­cam­pus stu­dents can ap­ply on­line at www. ksbe.edu/ad­mis­sions. There, fam­i­lies can find the course cat­a­log with de­scrip­tions of the var­i­ous of­fer­ings this sum­mer as well as more in­for­ma­tion about tu­ition, trans­porta­tion and the ap­pli­ca­tion process.
