    • A Message from School
    • Aloha! Hawaii Community College’s Intensive English Program (IEP) is located in Hilo, Hawai‘i, on the east side of Hawai‘i Island. Hawai‘i Island, also known as the “Big Island,”is a 40-minute flight from Honolulu. Hawai‘i is a beautiful place to live and study. The town of Hilo is small and quiet. There are many things to do if you enjoy nature and being close to the ocean. Hilo keeps the old traditions of Hawai‘i and it is a good location to learn more about Hawaiian culture. The IEP is a small program with a family atmosphere. Our teachers are kind and friendly professionals, who will work closely with you to reach your academic goals. We are used to working with students who have never been abroad before. The IEP is a serious academic program, but we also know how to make learning English enjoyable. Our focus is on communication, and we try to involve all of our students with community-based activities and various volunteer programs. We look forward to receiving your application from ApplyESL.com!
