Our Vision & Mission

Kapolei Charter School by Goodwill Hawaii is a new, innovative public charter high school providing Leeward Oahu students with an alternative learning environment to assist them in earning a Board of Education high school diploma and preparing for long-term success and self-sufficiency.

Upon graduation, students will have also earned a post-secondary certification and/or community college credits to prepare them to enter the workforce and beyond.

Our mission is to interrupt generational poverty by providing customized, meaningful, and alternative educational opportunities to students who may not be successful in the traditional educational system.

The curriculum will focus on three pillars to help them achieve successful outcomes.
