After-School All-Stars Hawaii (ASAS) provides comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and life.
Our goal is to identify and fuel our student’s individual passions, by tying their interests to tailored academic support, enrichment activities and sports. By creating lasting relationships with our students and incorporating service learning, we equip our All-Stars with the confidence and skills to become productive members of their community.
After-School All-Stars Hawaii (ASAS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in Hawaiʻi and has provided free after-school programs for middle school students since 2009. ASAS serves more than 2,300 students in the islands every year by partnering with the Hawaiʻi Department of Education and other community organizations. ASAS Hawaii leverages community resources, provides engaging learning opportunities for students, addresses the major issues students face today and provides practical solutions for working families in under-resourced communities.
ASAS provides its students a safe-haven during the ‘danger zone’ hours of 3pm to 6pm – the time of day when youth violence, drug use and other delinquent behaviors are most likely to occur. ASAS programs provide effective and thoughtful supports to fight against increasing school drop-out and the obesity crisis, in addition to preparing our students for fulfilling careers in the modern workforce.
For school year 2021-2022, we need to inform you of changes occurring in the Student Transportation Services Branch. Per the Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), students who qualify for free meal service also qualify for free bus pass transportation. Historically this has meant that students who attend Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) schools like ours, receive a free bus pass because all students are receiving free meals.
In 2019, the HAR was revised clarifying that only students who are certified eligible by the Department of Human Services to participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) are also eligible for free bus passes.
The Student Transportation Services Branch will be adhering to these guidelines beginning in the 2021-2022 school year.
To clarify, a student attending a CEP school must be SNAP certified to be eligible for a free bus pass.

Pāhoa High and Intermediate School will be in person for school year 2021-2022, meaning that the expectation is that students are in attendance and learning.
There will be an option for those families who felt that the distance learning model was better for them for whatever reason. Pāhoa High and Intermediate School, along with Hawaii Department of Education will be offering students at our school an option for distance learning for School Year 2021-2022. The company that was selected is 🔗K12 Learning Solutions/STRIDE program.
There will be a two week delay at the beginning of the school year before the class fully starts. This means the first day for students in this program will be August 16th.
