Students are taught in traditional classrooms, using primarily ABEKA materials. This program features the following:

1. Phonics-based reading, beginning at the Jr-Kindergarten grade level.

2. Christian truths and values integrated in the curriculum through challenging academic work.

3. A system of directed teaching methods that allows individual differences within a structured program.

4. Curriculum which is up-to-date, attractive, and free of humanism. 

5. An eclectic approach gives our teachers the ability and freedom to use their creativity to enhance the learning process.

Makua Lani is a Kamehameha Schools Collaborator and accepts the Pauahi Keiki Scholars Scholarship for pre-school students. The application process for the 2021-2022 school year is open to eligible students and can be found at ksbe.edu



Jr-K is a full day program with the purpose of offering our families a nurturing, caring and safe educational environment that is distinctively Christian. The program consists of important foundational, biblical truths and introductory academic activities that fully prepare the child to be successful in Kindergarten. The program also teaches fun and experiential learning activities that challenge them to be lifetime learners.

To be eligible for enrollment, children must be 3 years 8 months by the first day of school (or 4 years old by Dec. 31.) and must be fully potty trained when they begin school.
