Each year, Maui Preparatory Academy hosts an event in an effort to help raise funds for the financial aid program. Last year, the committee decided to spice things up a bit and change the “ball” into a “gala,” and what a gala it was! Maui Prep family and friends celebrated the school’s 10th Anniversary in style at the Hyatt Regency Ballroom. This year promises to be even more spectacular with the theme “Carnival, an event that can’t be missed. Tickets are available at the Maui Prep office or contact Lynne Twigg at firstname.lastname@example.org or (808)665-9966.
Maui Preparatory Academy is proud to announce a new educational arm of the school: The Moana Institute. The Moana Institute caters to a global audience and leverages Maui’s beautiful and varied ecosystems to provide “hands-on, feet-wet” learning experiences for students interested in marine science and marine studies. In short, we make Maui our classroom.
The Moana Institute has two main components: a summer program (“Summer@Moana”) and a semester-based program (“Semester On Island”). Summer@Moana will be a 2-week summer camp experience for middle and high school students (age minimum: 12) engaging in marine science study through snorkeling, sailing, scuba diving certification, and surfing.

Semester On Island students partake in science, math, history, literature and elective courses focused on marine studies all while earning high school academic credit through the Moana Institute’s partnership with Maui Preparatory Academy. The cohort of students will spend 3 months engaged in active study as they work alongside award-winning faculty and leading marine scientists before transitioning back to their sending school.
“The future is in the hands of those who explore…and from all the beauty they discover…they develop for nature and for humankind an infinite love.”
