Ho‘omāka‘ika‘i is a one-week program for students who will be entering Grade 6 in school year 2024-25. The program engages students in hands-on learning activities focused on cultural values and practices to develop Hawaiian identity and leadership.
This year, the Ho‘omāka‘ika‘i program will return to a weeklong residential program model. Students will engage in cultural activities during the day and return to our campus dormitories in the evenings.
Tuition: $150.00. Fee waiver available.
