Goals for the Student Athlete:
Athletics helps our students prepare for lifelong skills, collaboration and teamwork.  Academically, our students learn to value the rigors of self discipline and value good sportsmanship while continually striving for improvement. Above all, Kekaulike's program is committed to cultivating a culture of caring for one another, for our school, and our community.

Philosophy of Athletics:
Here at Kekaulike, our athletic program is an integral part of every participating student athletes education. Our focus is on helping our students to develop mentally, physically, emotionally, and morally.  Our student athletes are given the opportunity to participate in a wide range of athletic activities which foster sportsmanlike conduct as well as healthy competition.  Our program promotes the full development of our student athletes potential, but also provides them with training and understanding on the areas of cooperation, commitment, discipline and respect for peers, adults, and self.  Because of this, our student athletes are expected to maintain a high standard of conduct which will reflect pride and create respect for our school.
