Aloha kākou,

  Hakipuʻu Academy was founded on the belief that students are life long learners. Uncle Calvin and Aunty Charlene Hoe used Ma ka hana ka ʻike to create and open Hakipuʻu Learning Center in 2001. Located in Kāneʻohe, Oʻahu, we lean on the foundation that the Hoe ʻohana built to develop and implement project-based learning. As we continue to grow, we are humbled and honored to continue the story of Hakipuʻu.  Mahalo for being part of our story. 

Mālama Pono, 

Michael Nakasato
