Maui Preparatory Academy is an amazing destination for motivated students to learn and play in a nurturing yet academically rigorous college-preparatory environment. Maui Prep is located on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui. 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.
