Common to our three Kamehameha Schools’ campuses is the goal to fulfill the mission of Ke Ali‛i Bernice Pauahi Bishop. Here we share some of the wonderful stories of those industrious men and women who’ve given life to our Founder’s vision, becoming leaders and agents of social change - improving the lives of our lāhui beyond our campus walls. I Mua Kamehameha!

We strive for academic excellence and cultivate a desire for lifelong learning. We are a values-based organization grounded in Christian and Hawaiian values; and we instill perseverance, enabling students to fulfill their legacy to be industrious, service-oriented, young men and women.
