• Maui Prep is an independent, coeducational day school offering a college-preparatory program for students in preschool through high school.
  • Our school is divided into four robust programs:
  • Maui Prep welcomed 18 middle school students in 2005.  Classes were originally held in banquet spaces in the now-demolished Kapalua Bay Hotel. 
  • Maui Land & Pineapple Company donated the 20 acres of land and existing buildings for the development of the school.  
    Maui Prep is a nonprofit organization governed by a Board of Trustees made up of parents and community leaders concerned about the quality of education each child receives at Maui Prep.
