'Ike Hawai'i - Fall 2011

Registration available:  April 15 - June 3, 2011
Mahalo nui loa for your interest in our Kamehameha Schools ‘Ike Hawai‘i Distance Learning Program. Kamehameha Schools Distance Learning Branch is in the process of transforming the ‘Ike Hawai‘i Program. We are excited to be working with the Hawai‘i Virtual Learning Network and other collaborators to expand and offer ‘Ike Hawai‘i courses in a variety of models. Due to this change in program format, we will only be offering the Hawaiian History course for the Fall 2011 semester. After the Fall 2011 semester, ‘Ike Hawai‘i courses will be offered directly through the Hawai‘i Virtual Learning Network and our collaborating schools. If you have questions regarding these program changes, please e-mail ikehawaii@ksbe.edu. We look forward to your child’s participation in this award-winning, interactive learning experience this semester.


Students who will be in grades 9, 10, 11 or 12 in the Fall 2011 semester may apply.



The Hawaiian History course is conducted entirely online. With all course content being covered at a distance, you really need to ask yourself if distance learning is for you.


To find out if you are a good candidate to take a course via distance learning, please take some time to think about the following questions. 

  1. Am I a self-motivated individual, and a self-starter, who can work independently with little direction?
  2. Am I self-disciplined, organized, and a good time manager?
  3. Will I take the initiative to e-mail/call my instructor with questions/concerns about the course?
  4. Do I have good study habits and time management skills?
  5. Do I complete whatever I start and persevere, even when confronted with obstacles?

If you’ve answered “YES” to the majority of these questions, then you ARE a good candidate to take courses via distance learning!  For a complete self-assessment, visit http://ksdl.ksbe.edu/whatisdl/pretest.html.

There is a registration fee of $50.00.

All ‘Ike Hawai‘i Hawaiian History course will begin August 15, 2011 and end December 16, 2011.  A mandatory distance learning orientation for all new students must be completed from August 1 - August 12, 2011.


Applicants are responsible for checking with their schools to make sure that the credits they earn by completing an ‘Ike Hawai‘i Hawaiian History course can be applied towards their graduation requirements.  Equivalency value of the credit will be determined by the school to which the credit will be transferred.


Currently, Hakipu‘u Learning Center, Hālau Kū Mana, Elite Element Academy and Ke Kula Ni‘ihau o Kekaha public charter schools accept ‘Ike Hawai‘i Distance Learning course credits to meet graduation requirements.  Students attending any other high school will need to check with their respective principals to verify that credits will be accepted.


Kamehameha is a Christian, non-denominational Protestant school.


E-mails will be sent on June 13, 2011.



If there have been changes affecting your child’s legal name, any custody agreements or legal guardianship of your child, you will be asked to submit all necessary court documents prior to your child’s enrollment in the Kamehameha Schools program.
