The Kalihi No Ka Oi Project: Building a Global Community of Learners is a Schools of the Future Project funded by a grant from the Hawai’i Community Foundation in cooperation with the Hawai`i Association of Independent Schools. The Kalihi No Ka Oi Project is a collaborative undertaking that involves four partner institutions: St. Anthony and St. John the Baptist Schools in Kailihi, Chaminade University of Honolulu, and the Hawaii Catholic Schools Office.
The uniqueness of the Kalihi No Ka Oi lies in the synergy of a collaboration that will reach not only these two schools, but have longer term impact across Catholic schools in Hawai`i and elsewhere. This collaborative project has been purposely designed to model strategies that can reach and empower students from diverse and traditionally under-served populations. The vision is to create a model program that will produce Kalihi school graduates who have the capacity to meet the challenges they will face in the 21st century in the context. In doing this, it is our intent that this program be adapted for use in schools both within and beyond Hawai`i's Catholic school network.
