Self-expression through all forms of art is essential to child development.
Maui Prep offers students in every grade opportunities to explore the Arts through core and elective classes, clubs, and extracurricular activities.
K-12 Arts Curriculum
Performing Arts (Musical Theater, Drama, and Dance)
Since the school’s founding in 2005, Performing Arts has been a cornerstone of the Maui Prep experience. In Spring 2006, the school staged its first musical: “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” The number of eager student-thespians outnumbered the number of roles, so the show was double-cast with a performance for each ensemble at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua Hotel.
Visual and Fine Arts
With core classes for all grades at Maui Prep, students find joy in self-expression through painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media and ceramics.
Design Technology and Engineering
Though technology and tools change, the need for critical-thinking, problem-solving, growth mindset, and collaboration do not. Maui Prep's Graham Center and Narayan Design Lab provide a laboratory for students to develop confidence in applying technology and design for practical purposes.
The 7AM Band takes its name from its designated rehearsal time. Whether you are a vocalist, a musician, or just have a knack for keeping rhythm, the 7AM Band has a spot for you. Mrs. Vania Jerome shares her eclectic playlist as she harmonizes voices and instruments for classic and Top 40 pop and rock hits.
