St. Andrew’s Schools and Kamehameha Schools signed the Ke Ali'i Collaboration, which will provide half a million dollars in tuition assistance for new and currently enrolled native Hawaiian students at The Priory (girls K-12) and The Prep (boys K-5) who demonstrate some degree of financial need. This strategic and collaborative agreement will provide more children of Hawaiian ancestry with a high quality, college preparatory and Hawaiian culture-based education.
As two long-standing, highly reputable educational institutions on Oʻahu, with a common Aliʻi founding and the aligned goal of providing Hawaiian children access to an excellent education, we are honored to partner with Kamehameha Schools to advance the success of Native Hawaiian children!
In order to be considered, families must apply for admission to St. Andrew’s Schools AND financial aid through SSS by NAIS. To benefit from this collaboration, families must demonstrate financial need. If you have any questions please contact the St. Andrew’s Admissions office at (808) 536-6102 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
