    Local grinds (food), organic farms, and charitable organizations make sustaining life outside of school possible. Get connected with the land and each other makes for a stress-free time in the class room.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I am hoping to gain more bang for my buck by applying for as many scholarships as possible to help lower my costs to attend Kauai Community College; if you are a resident costs are dramatically cheaper.

    To Scholarship: I am writing my Essay to help getting me a scholarship; I am very excited to be a student at Kauai Community College. I am a mother of eight and happily married. Growing in a big family was always hard work, school and cleaning. As I was graduating High School, I never thought of seeing myself a student at a college or going to college. Never heard my parents ask us about college and if we were interested in going to school but am Very blessed to be able to go. My first Semester at Kauai Community College was great, I thought I wasn’t able to do it but with the support of my husband and children I am able to succeed. I’ve been on Island for 6 years and love that planting here in Kauai is that easy, My parents and little brother planted some Taro and its blooming just great, also Me and my husband got some Tea leaf from friends and able to plant them right tin the dirt. Talk about exiting, my first Banana tree just blooms and lots of Bananas, I know that as I live here in Kauai, I am able to plant and feed my children. I share with my family in the Mainland how nice and simple it is to grow food and plants. Thanks, Diean Kamauoha
