Program Description

Ka'u Learning Academy is a tuition-free, public charter school. We will be opening with grades 3-6 in July of 2015 in Naalehu, Hawaii. KLA will primarily serve students from all of Ka'u including Naalehu, Ocean View, and Pahala. Lunch and transportation will be provided.

Unlike traditional public schools, KLA will provide an individual education plan for every student, allowing each child to work at his/her own ability level. We know that every child is unique, and the "one-size-fits-all" approach used in most public schools does not work for many children. Children are often frustrated by being asked to do work that they are not ready for or being held back by arbitrary limits determined by age. KLA is changing the education paradigm from students understanding their teachers to teachers understanding their students.
