  • We're Hosting Two College Fairs This Summer!

    For the second consecutive year, we are proud to announce that we will be holding free college fairs open to the public at both of our College Horizons host sites - first at Hawaii Prep Academy (HPA) in Kamuela, HI on June 20, 2013 and at New York University (NYU) in New York, NY on July 11, 2013.  Each fair features our partner institutions as well as schools coming exclusively for the fair.  See below for copies of the flyers.  Please help spread the word to families, educators and students who will be present in the area.


    Students, families and educators who attend the fair will have the opportunity to speak directly with college admission representatives from each of the schools on the flyer.  To download the flyers as PDFs, click on the following links: HPA College Fair Flyer & NYU College Fair Flyer.


    A huge thanks and shout out to our generous sponsors and hosts for helping provide this unique opportunity: Hawaii Prep Academy, New York University, University of Southern California, University of Rochester and the Office of Hawaiian Affairs.  For a brief description of each school represented at the college fairs, please visit our Colleges page.

  • CH Alumni Hangout

    This past Sunday, three alumni from our programs and Hillary Abe (our Coordinator of Recruitment) had the opportunity to record a live broadcast.  In it, they candidly discuss their experiences at our program.  Listen to what they liked, what was most difficult and what they took away from the program in this unedited recording.  We even had one student join us from his dorm room - awesome!

    A huge THANK YOU to the Native Hawaiian alumni who were able to serve on this panel:  Ernest Tavares CH '10 & '11, Emily McLain CH '12 and Holeka Inaba CH '11.  You all did amazing and it was the highlight of our week - we couldn't have done this without you!

    So without further ado, we hope you enjoy hearing about our programs from the most important people we serve:
