Windward CC

An Inspirational and Innovative Place to Learn and Grow
Known for its beautiful setting and nurturing learning environment, Windward Community College offers innovative programs in science and the arts, and opportunities to gain knowledge and understanding of Hawai'i and its unique heritage.
Students can earn one of three associate degrees and further their education at a four-year university, or enter the workforce with confidence after earning a certificate. Noncredit programs offer courses for personal and professional growth, and entry into higher education.
Creative Programs
Atelier Hawai'i is Hawai'i's only classical art program where students learn to draw and paint in the Realist Tradition. At the Hawai'i Music Institute students can learn about the local music industry from seasoned entertainers. The summer PaCES program offers high school students a chance to earn college credit while studying environmental science.
Community Engagement
Windward's Palikū Theatre, Hōkūlani Imaginarium, Lanihuli Observatory and Gallery 'Iolani attract thousands of visitors and students each year to enjoy original and adapted musicals, listen to concerts in acoustically perfect surroundings, appreciate unique art exhibits and discover outer-space adventures. Every year the college shares the best in island entertainment, food, Hawaiian crafts and college programs at the Windward Ho'olaule'a and Palikū Arts Festival.
