Hawaii Technology Academy (HTA) is a tuition-free, WASC accredited, public charter school. Serving more than 1,200 students in campuses across four islands (Hawaii Island, Kauai, Maui, and Oahu), HTA is Hawaii’s largest statewide public charter school.
A five-day-a-week program, HTA’s innovative blended learning model provides students with a combination of face-to-face instruction, virtual instruction, and independent learning each week. As a result, students gain technical skills used in the professional world by working within Google platforms and enterprise web conferencing software; they learn experientially through consistent field studies; and they have the flexibility to develop desirable employability skills through HTA’s work-based learning programs with community partners, enhancing college and career readiness.
HTA’s school culture lives and breathes its five Core Values: Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Communication, Creativity, and Character. The school’s highly-qualified, certified teachers design and deliver project-based, Common Core-aligned curriculum that also connects to the five Cores, educating the whole child. Teachers choose to work at HTA because the school’s model nurtures the very reason many are called to the profession: for the joy of positively impacting the lives of students as learners, but more importantly as people. Teachers at HTA have the freedom to educate students more personally, giving them the attention they need to be successful.
HTA’s blended learning model also allows for a true parent-teacher partnership in the education of children. Parents play a more hands-on role in their student’s learning. Communication between the school and family is fully transparent as parents have online access to their student’s entire school profile, including coursework, grades, attendance, and more.
The future of learning is here, in the present, at HTA: “We are a community embracing the challenges of today and the opportunities of tomorrow.”
We empower students to succeed through our blended learning experience – face-to-face, virtual and independent.
A community embracing the challenges of today and the opportunities of tomorrow.
