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.  

Visual and Fine Arts Curriculum

  • Maui Prep Lower School art curriculum includes painting, drawing, sculpture, mixed media and ceramics.  Students engage in inquiry based art to build foundational art skills.  
  • Middle School students enroll in quarter-long exploratory classes designed to help improve students’ basic art skills; drawing, painting, collage and design artwork using a variety of media and techniques. 
  • Upper School students may choose from three different courses for their elective, beginning with Art Foundations.  Students will explore a variety of artists, art processes and materials such as drawing, painting, printmaking and two & three-dimensional design 

Performing Arts

Maui Prep Performing Arts includes theater, music, and dance. School performing arts programs not only nurture students' artistic talents, but also foster important life skills such as collaboration, communication, and perseverance. Students involved in these programs have the opportunity to develop their creativity, self-expression, teamwork, and confidence.

Performing Arts Curriculum

  • Maui Prep's Lower School (K-5) curriculum includes year-long Performing Arts (Music, Drama, and Dance) classes.
  • In Middle school (grades 6-8), students may choose a quarterly Performing Arts elective.
  • Upper School students may choose a semester-long Performing Arts elective to satisfy the 1.0 credit Visual/Performing Arts requirement for graduation

Theatrical Productions

Each year, the Maui Prep Arts Department presents two musical theater productions: a Lower School production in the fall and Middle and Upper in the spring. The productions run for several nights at the Graham Theater in the Bozich Center for Athletics and Performing Arts.

Rehearsals take place after school and occasionally on weekends. Support for the productions comes from parents, local businesses, and other theater groups on Maui.

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. 

Technology Curriculum

  • Maui Prep Lower School technology demonstrates the "creation" aspects of technology rather than the "consumption." Lower school students engage with technology through basic robotics, including LEGO FIRST, a STEM-centered curriculum.
  • Middle School students apply design principles and learn technology tools that they can apply to other classes as well as use as a springboard to further exploration in design, coding, 3D modeling, and robotics. Each quarter features a different directed focus.
  • Upper School students are self-directed and choose a real-world problem or challenge to tackle, using appropriate technology tools and tutorials, and work to develop their skills in areas ranging from coding and robotics to architecture, computer graphics, digital photography, video production, and any other STEM area. The semester-long Visual Arts electives help to satisfy the 1.0 credit Visual/Performing Arts requirement for graduation.

Engineering and Design Curriculum

  • Middle School students learn basic coding and electrical engineering, complete assigned design challenges, and work on individual and group design-build projects. Students will be able to create and code circuits, solve problems, and think creatively about design.
  • Upper School students cover more advanced topics of circuitry, design and modeling, fabrication, and other creative design. Students engage in active learning and problem-solving with real-world design issues. The semester-long Visual Arts electives help to satisfy the 1.0 credit Visual/Performing Arts requirement for graduation.

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.

Arts Learning Spaces

The Graham Center

The Graham Center houses the technology program at Maui Prep, serving students in all grades. Students learn general technology tools and skills to use throughout their school career as well as more specialized software and hardware, including:

  • 3D Modeling & Printing
  • Game Design and Coding
  • Robotics Building and Programming
  • Graphic and Architectural Design Tools
  • Audio and Video Engineering


Narayan Design Lab

The Narayan Design Lab is a multi-purpose classroom space that serves as a wet-lab science classroom and an engineering fabrication studio. Educational goals include:

  • Electrical engineering: circuitry design, coding
  • Coding: C++ coding language for Arduino function
  • Fabrication: Student design/build projects with electronics, wood, and metals. Laser cutter, 3D printer, etc.
  • Design challenges: bridges, vehicles, structures, and other challenges for students to create solutions to real-world engineering challenges


Chin Studio at the Bozich Center

The Chin Studio is a multi-purpose room primarily used as a dance studio in the Bozich Center.  The room features wall-to-wall mirrors, portable ballet barres, and a luxury sprung dance floor. The room also serves as a treatment and rehab center for the Maui Prep Athletic Training Department.
