“What is an intersession group?”

Intersession groups are Hawai‘i-based organizations that serve Hawai‘i residents and exist to provide local students with activities during breaks in the regular school year.

A typical intersession group fits the following criteria:

  • The group features a wide range of grade levels in a single group (possibly from Pre-K to 12th grade).
  • The group is led by operational staff rather than classroom teachers.
  • The group offers and/or seeks free choice learning experiences for students (i.e. students are not tested as in a regular school setting).
  • The group operates during a Hawai‘i State K-12 school break (summer, fall, winter, and spring breaks).
