Hānai i ke keiki, ola ka lāhui

Nurture the child and the lāhui thrives

Founded in 1887 by the legacy of Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop, Kamehameha Schools is private, educational, charitable trust committed to improving the capability and well-being of Native Hawaiians through education and this enduring legacy continues to transform the lives of countless keiki.

We envision a thriving lāhui where learners, grounded in Christian and Hawaiian values, grow into ‘ōiwi leaders who inspire and contribute to their communities, both locally and globally.
