Since 2009, Hawai‘i P-20 has worked with the Hawai‘i Department of Education (HIDOE), the University of Hawai‘i (UH), and the Workforce Development Council DLIR to develop a college access web portal, MyFutureHawai‘i.org, Hawai‘i’s college and career connection website for HIDOE students.
The portal is envisioned as a “one-stop shop” for students and families to explore careers, submit college applications online and apply for financial aid.
The portal is currently being used by 33 schools statewide. These schools include:
- Kauai: Kauaʻi HS, Waimea HS
- Oahu: Campbell HS, Kahuku High & Inter, Kailua HS, Kaimuki HS, Kalani HS, Kaimaile Academy PCS, McKinley HS, Mililani HS, Nānākuli High & Inter, Roosevelt HS, Waialua High & Inter, Waipahu HS, Waiʻanae HS
- Maui: Hana HS, King Kekaulike HS, Lahainaluna HS, Maui HS
- Molokai: Molokai HS
- Big Island: Hilo HS, Honokaʻa High & Inter, Kanu O Ka ʻAina NCPCS*, Kaʻu High & Pahala Elem, Keaʻau HS, Kealakehe HS, Ke Kula O Ehunuikaiʻmalino, Kohala HS, Hilo HS, Konawaena HS, Pahoa High & Inter, Waiakea HS, West Hawai‘i Explorations Academy*
*Public charter schools
GEAR UP Hawai‘i has developed training for educators to use in guiding their students through the use of the portal, provide professional development to HIDOE counselors and school staff to use this technology to help students navigate the college preparation and application processes, and promote the portal’s benefits to school administrators.
