Message from the Head of School

Dr. Miguel Solis, Head of School

Aloha,

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Maui Preparatory Academy!

Founded in 2005, our school offers excellence in three major areas: academics, performing arts, and athletics. Our mission and vision establish a culture of excellence focused on building RELATIONSHIPS, fostering EMPOWERMENT, and ensuring RELEVANCE.

These characteristics, along with a commitment to “live aloha,” are modeled by our Maui Prep staff, families, and nearly 150 alumni around the world.

The Graham Center for Creativity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship (completed in 2019) provides the ability to develop new ideas and discover unique ways of problem-solving as well as the freedom to innovate, create solutions, and learn beyond the confines of the classroom.

The Bozich Center for Athletics and Performing Arts (completed 2020) creates a safe and modern space for performing artists and athletes to access and benefit from an already sustainable and successful program. This center also provides Maui Prep the opportunity to extend itself to the West Maui and island community at large.

A native of Burbank, California, and graduate of the University of Southern California's Rossier School of Education, I have published my dissertation on educational management and fostering leadership sustainability in Hawaii’s K-12 schools. I look forward to propelling our school along its current upward trajectory.

As a Head of School, I collaborate with a wonderful administration, faculty, staff, families, and students.  Allied with our Board of Trustees, we seek to further enhance and supersede expectations for our entire Maui Prep community.

Welcome to the Maui Prep ‘ohana. You will find a kind, deeply connected community that thrives on elevating the experience for our students and the West Maui community.

GO PUEO!

Dr. Miguel Alejandro Solis
