'O ka Hale Kuamoʻo kahi e hoʻopuka nui ʻia nei nā haʻawina ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi no nā kula ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi e like me nā kula Niʻihau a me nā Kula Kaiapuni Hawaiʻi. ʻO ka makemakika, ka ʻepekema, ka pilikanaka, ka mākau kamepiula, ka mākau ʻōlelo, ka mākau pāheona, ke olakino, ka hoʻoikaika kino, a me ka mōʻaukala Hawaiʻi kekahi o nā ʻano haʻawina a ka Hale Kuamoʻo e hoʻomohala aku nei. ʻOki hoʻi ka Hale Kuamoʻo i nā haʻawina pāpaho wikiō a lipine paha, a me nā haʻawina kākoʻo kumu Kaiapuni kekahi.

The Hale Kuamo'o is the primary State office providing educational support in the development of curriculum materials for Hawaiian medium programs, such as the Ni'ihau schools and the Papahana Kaiapuni Hawai'i located at public schools on six islands. Curriculum materials include math, science, social studies, computer science, language arts and literature, foreign languages, arts, health and physical education, and Hawaiian culture, history and language. Other Hawaiian medium curricular support includes multi-media resources, teaching aides, and enrichment materials.

The Hale Kuamo'o also prints a student-focused Hawaiian language newspaper-Na Maka o Kana-and a yearbook-Ka Hoe Uli-that combine submissions from schools statewide with University student journalistic skills.

The Hale Kuamo'o coordinates the activities and publications of the Lexicon Committee, which coins new vocabulary or contemporizes existing Hawaiian terms. The Lexicon Committee usually works with English words that require equivalents for the Hawaiian medium curriculum, and Hawaiian words that are updated for modern usage. Editions of the Mamaka Kaiao dictionary are distributed annually.
