Kaupe’a Virtual Learning

Kaupeʻa Virtual Learning Program for School Year 2023-24

Laupāhoehoe Community PCS is a public charter school with a Pre-K through 12th-grade
campus program and a Kindergarten through 12th-grade virtual learning program.
The Kaupeʻa Virtual Learning Program (Kaupeʻa) serves students on Hawaiʻi Island only

Our open enrollment process will begin March 1, 2023. 

Open enrollment process will end on May 31, 2023. 

During this time, received packets will be reviewed and processed for entry into a lottery. 

Phase I: March 1 – May 31, 2023

LCPCS is accepting Kaupeʻa Virtual Learning Program applications from March 1 until May 31, 2023. Families may obtain an application via the school’s website and submit applications electronically via email attachment to [email protected]

We are not accepting high school applications. ONLY current Kaupeʻa middle school students who have been successful in the program are permitted to advance to the high school level. 

Applications will be reviewed for completion. Only correctly completed application packets with all necessary documents attached will be entered into the student lottery. Applicants will be notified if corrections are required. 

Student Lottery

The lottery date may vary each year but will typically be held in the month of June. 

Phase II: July 1 – July 29, 2023

After May 31 any correctly completed application packets will be held and waitlisted in the event of a secondary lottery. This will only occur if there are still grade-level seats available.

When an application is received during this phase, it will be reviewed and the family will be notified. 

Post-Acceptance Process

Once a student has been admitted to LCPCS, a series of intake steps must be completed, including course selection and completion of school, state, and federal forms. 

Due dates for the intake steps will be provided, and families are expected to abide by them so that students are prepared to begin the new school year.
