Maui Preparatory Academy in Nāpili is constructing two new campus facilities that will add over 1200 square feet to existing infrastructure and position the school for future growth.

In an effort to provide the West Maui community with more quality preschool spaces, the preschool expansion project adds usable space and new restroom facilities specifically sized for preschool-aged children. The project recently received a donation from the Samuel A. and Mary Castle Foundation.

Maui Prep will also add 992 square feet of idea incubation space to the school’s E Building. This facility is part of a campus-wide initiative to expand creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship programs giving all students the opportunity to learn and engage in creative and purposeful problem solving and hands-on innovation. This project was funded by the Fred Baldwin Memorial Foundation, Atherton Foundation, Central Pacific Bank, Graham Family Foundation, First Hawaiian Bank Foundation, and Maui Prep parents.

According to Jonathan Silver, Head of School, these projects are the first in a series projects slated to take place on the Maui Prep campus over the next three years. To keep pace with the growth of the school, Maui Prep plans construction of an athletic and performing arts center, playground upgrades, additional classroom spaces, and extensive site improvements.

Maui Prep experienced its largest enrollment ever in 2017/2018, and anticipates more growth in the future.


“With these new facilities and enhanced programs, this is truly a great time to be a student at Maui Prep,” said Dr. Silver.
