To empower young people to be passionate advocates for and caring stewards of our ocean environments.
The Moana Institute Maui, as a subsidiary of Maui Preparatory Academy, provides “hands on, feet wet” marine science-based experiences for middle and high school students from around the world. Our place-based learning approach ensures that students receive a well-rounded experience focusing on the ecology, the culture and the economic drivers of the beautiful island of Maui. The Moana Institute Maui has partnered with world-class organizations to supplement the delivery these exciting programs to our students.
During your stay, you will reside at Hale Maui, our residential facility. Hale Maui is just steps away from the ocean. You and your roommates will live in one of several, spacious dorm apartments. As a community, we gather in “The Nest”, Hale Maui’s penthouse, to share meals, engage with guest lecturers, and have community gatherings. Our residential faculty provide a safe, caring, and supportive environment allowing you to have the most memorable time possible on Maui.
