From Maui Preparatory Academy

Located on the beautiful island of Maui, Maui Preparatory Academy is an amazing destination for motivated students. The volcanic origins of the Hawaiian archipelago, the tropical climate, and the warm Pacific Ocean that teems with marine life make the “outdoors” Maui Prep’s most extraordinary classroom. No matter the student’s interests–in the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, or the arts, the foundation of Maui Prep’s program is its commitment to coaching 21st-century higher order thinking skills, collaboration, communication, and innovation, and to providing multi-disciplinary college preparatory learning opportunities.

Maui Preparatory Academy Reviews

I currently have two Lower School students who attend Maui Prep (1st and 3rd grades). As summer is approaching, they do not want the school year to end! They love their teachers and their school, and jump out of the car every single day to go to school. As a parent, the campus is totally safe and majestic, with the Pacific Ocean as a back-drop one way, and the mountains and old pineapple fields the other way. The students are outside all day, and the teachers treat our island home like part of the classroom. Both of my kids have grown very strong academically, and both received individual attention when they needed help in certain areas. They also focus on a child's character and being good citizens of our community and world. But I think my favorite part of Maui Prep is the school's culture. It truly is a community, which is why the school often refers to itself as the Maui Prep 'Ohana (family).

Our children joined the Maui Prep 'ohana four years ago. The teachers truly care about their students and their families.
There is NO bullying, NO violence, NO cliques...everyone is simply kind, supportive, and respectful to each other regardless of race, religion, and economic status. Other programs simply do not compare in terms of safety, leadership, and molding our children into responsible young adults. They have been taught to be stewards of the 'aina, respectful of various cultures, and to appreciate the opportunities that they have been given. Our kids at MPA are kept incredibly busy with school work, projects, theater, field trips, community service work, science olympiad, sports, clubs, etc.
The administrators know every child and every child's family. Students at MPA interact with other local schools/students across the state and the school is always well-represented. Each student is treated as an individual.
Maui Prep is so more more than a school; it is a close caring community for students in grades Pre-K to 12th grade. Students are highly engaged both academically and in extracurricular activities. Although they are small and can't offer everything, there are many ways to get involved. The school has an excellent reputation for college placement and over 50 colleges come visit to recruit. There is a lot of support for the college process. However, it is not the right fit for kids who are not motivated to attend college.
