OUR CAMPUS is located in Napili on 15 acres of land generously donated by Maui Land & Pineapple Company, Inc. Our plantation-style buildings are nestled among Norfolk pines with views of the Pacific.

OUR CURRICULUM blends a rigorous interdisciplinary academic program with a commitment to providing students with a nurturing, caring, and safe learning experience.  At Maui Prep the pursuit of excellence is encouraged and fostered.  The curriculum focuses on preparing students to succeed at the college of their choice and in the world beyond.

OUR FACULTY makes the difference. We place the highest priority on recruiting well-trained, knowledgeable, and experienced teachers.  Our Faculty is comprised of the best and the brightest educators.  Our teachers bring enthusiasm and excitement to their classrooms where small class size helps to foster a rigorous college prep curriculum.

OUR CLASSROOMS support every aspect of learning through state-of-the-art technology and the finest quality materials and equipment.  Middle and upper school students use laptop computers. Each classroom is equipped with Smartboard technology. Maui Prep has a first-rate computer lab and a Physical & Biological Science laboratory.

OUR EXTRA-CURRICULAR program gives Maui Prep students the opportunity to participate in activities that stretch beyond the classroom. Activities include performing arts, visual arts, after-school programs, MIL Sports, middle school sports, class trips and clubs. Middle and upper school students depart from their regular curriculum each year during Interim Week. Students may hike and camp in Haleakala Crater, study oceanography through daily snorkeling excursions, visit colleges, or plant trees on Ka’ho’olawe.

OUR TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM is committed to providing financial aid to qualified students, giving them the opportunity for a quality college preparatory education, which might not otherwise be available. Currently, 40% of our 220 plus student body receive need-based tuition assistance.
