How do I enroll my child at LCPCS?

LCPCS is a public charter school for students in grades Kindergarten through 12. We offer a campus-based educational program at our Kihalani Campus, as well as a virtual learning program called Kaupe'a. For more information on the Kaupe'a Program, please visit the Kaupe'a: Virtual Learning Program page. There is also a Pre-K program at LCPCS for qualifying students. LCPCS is tuition-free for Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade. There is an annual fee for 6th - 12th graders of $17 that goes toward Student Body Government activities and to their class account. Please contact the school for additional information. 

For our campus-based program...

The Early Enrollment period is from January 1 - February 15. This time period allows families who live outside the Laupahoehoe school district to apply for space. 

Open Enrollment begins on March 1st and ends on May 31st. This is typically when families register their child for kindergarten. Kindergarten is now mandatory in the State of Hawai'i. Children must be 5 years old by July 31st to enroll for the upcoming school year.
