In the aftermath of the pandemic, one fact remains abundantly clear: the need for innovative, accessible education is absolutely vital. While the forced shift to distance learning back in 2020 left schools scrambling to effectively deliver instruction, HTA's unique blended learning program allowed our school to transition with greater ease. Virtual learning is an important component of our blended learning program, and, as such, our faculty, students, and families were already poised to navigate the realm of online learning.
While the world begins to ease back to normal, we fully recognize that some families may not yet be comfortable sending their children back to face-to-face classes. HTA is pleased to announce that we are offering a full distance learning program to students in Grades 4-12 across Hawai'i.
