Summer at Hawai’i Preparatory Academy (HPA) on the island of Hawai’i offers students a unique four-week boarding experience structured for academic enrichment and designed to make the most of summer and take advantage of the wondrous island—home to 80 percent of the world’s ecosystems. Summer Session students select three two-hour classes and participate in an after-school sport from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Many of our offerings focus on sustainable living integrated into language arts, math, science, visual arts, and Hawaiian culture classes. Students in grades 9-12 may select one of two credit courses in marine science or indigenous plant print-making, or earn their PADI scuba certification. Summer at HPA offers new and prospective HPA students an excellent introduction to the school’s program and instructors. Many students return every summer to take advantage of the outstanding program and staff and to meet students from around the world.
