WHEA Boards


Governing Board


West Hawaii Explorations Academy Governing Board is an independent governing body of our charter school. The board members are responsible for the oversight of organization, management, financial and academic viability of the school, and compliance with applicable federal and state laws. Each charter school has its own Governing School Board which offers the local control it needs to respond appropriately and in a timely manner to the needs of the school and the community.

Reaching Higher

The Kailua-Kona community has always been a vibrant and special place. For many families who live there, WHEA provides their children with a choice-a different way of learning that encourages them to think out of the box. It also empowers them to take an active role in their education and reach higher. It is a real education for the real world.


The ground-breaking school for the future is embarking on a capital campaign to help fulfill its mission and continue to flourish. The Explorations Foundation, a nonprofit organization, was recently established to help build WHEA’s model environmental education center by partnering with individuals, businesses and organizations who want to make a difference.


Your support for this campaign will help to ensure that children at WHEA are nurtured and challenged today, as well as successful in what they choose to become tomorrow.
