Thanks for stopping by. Please take a look around to see how we do school differently on the Kaua‘i campus. We Kauaians love learning and we take it seriously. We also like to have fun, and we couldn‘t be more proud of our positive and inclusive school culture.
Just a few things that make Kaua‘i awesome
Simply the best.
Our Makerspace is an absolute tech playground where our students learn to use the latest technology. We have 3D printers, a CNC machine, laser cutters, T-shirt presses, electronics for circuitry, computer-building kits, and loads more.
& GREEN SPACE
Our green space is where we have lunch, play tag, hang out, throw parties, watch movies, grow plants, and more.
THE HANDS-ON PROJECTS
Kaua‘i students learn about physics while building and racing mouse-trap cars or parachuting eggs to safety. They write and publish books. They visit important and historic sites on Kaua‘i and O‘ahu. They master micropipettes and separate DNA via gel electrophoresis. They insert glowing proteins into bacteria. We learn best by doing.
SUSHI, THE FISH
Our students are regularly spotted in the field studying ecosystems specific to Kōke‘e and marine estuaries, visiting cultural sites and the Kaua‘i Museum, learning about electricity at KIUC, investigating coral reefs at ‘Anini, learning about sustainable farming practices, and more. This builds connections between classroom learning and the real world.
Our innovative Career-Based Learning program allows high school students to gain skills out in the real world. We’ve had students building experience at a local orthodontist, in an architecture firm, a veterinary clinic, a local bakery, at Kauai Labs, IT Kaua‘i, and Rainbow Roots Farms.
At the end of each semester, our students lead a conference with their Learning Coaches and advisor. These conferences are great practice for future job interviews. Students are encouraged to dress for the role as they share what they have achieved and reflect on their progress in our Five Cores: communication, collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and character.
From cooking, drama, and typing to board games, autocad, 3D printing, and jewelry making, there are enriching opportunities to engage all students.

The blended schedules
KAUA‘I CAMPUS DIRECTOR • firstname.lastname@example.org
I loved school. It’s a place where I belonged, where I had inspirational teachers, an amazing friend group, and where I enjoyed learning new things. I came to Hawai‘i after graduating from the University of Colorado with a degree in environmental, population, and organismic biology. I started with HTA as a Learning Coach, then joined the staff as a math and science teacher, before becoming the Kaua‘i campus director in 2018. This year I’m also stepping into a new role as HTA‘s associate director. It’s my job now, but I still love being in school.
