Financial Aid


K - 6 Financial Aid

We are happy to be able to offer a limited amount of assistance to those in need. Financial aid award decisions are based on demonstrated financial need, eligibility, student's academic standing, and completion of parent volunteer hours.

Funds for this program are raised through our Choose Love auction and from grant funding, which varies from year to year. The financial aid application window is open between December 1 - January 15 each year. Financial aid awardees will be notified by March 1. 

In addition, we are a collaborating partner with Kamehameha School's Kipona Scholarship program for students entering grade 6. Applications open August 15 and close December 1 for the 2023/2024 school year.
