NEW to our Kīhei campus next year is our innovative place-based program. We call it pbHTA and it takes students out into the field to work hands-on with our community partners. The program is open to Kīhei Grade 6 and will expand to Grade 7 as need arises. Students will design and create their own gardens and learn while exploring the loʻi, gardens, and aquatic life of the beautiful ʻĪao valley. Learn More

From Hawai'i Technology Academy Public Charter School

Welcome to HTA. We are Hawaiʻi’s largest public charter school with 1,700 students in K-12 across OʻAHU, KAUAʻI, MAUI, and HAWAIʻI ISLAND and in our G4-12 full DISTANCE LEARNING program.

Because we are a public charter school, there is no tuition at HTA.

Our blended model combines on-campus classes, virtual classes, and hands-on experiences. We embrace Field Studies at every grade level, so students can get out in their communities, building connections and deepening their learning.

Several of our campuses offer our innovative place-based pbHTA program, where students spend more time working on projects with our community partners. And our high school Career-Based Learning program also helps students explore different careers while also earning credit.

Our families play an integral role at HTA, resulting in close relationships and a caring, supportive, and friendly environment.

It is our mission to help every student find their own unique paths to success.

Hands-on experiences

academic spotlight

Experiential opportunities play a vital role in learning. Our teachers know how to keep students engaged with hands-on challenges and projects. And class Field Studies explore Hawai‘i’s unique cultural history and environment. These Field Studies engage our students with the social and environmental challenges that face our world, and show them how they can be part of the solution.
