On behalf of the faculty and administration at HTA, we welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. Hawaii Technology Academy strives to empower students to succeed through our blended learning experience – face-to-face, virtual and independent. We are confident that blended learning offers students at all grade levels the opportunity to find personal, academic and social growth through an innovative approach to teaching and learning. One that centers around the 5 C’s of 21st Century Learning for our Core Values:
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
- Creativity and Innovation
This year, we focus on the “C” of Character. At a unique school like HTA, students, teachers and parents all partner together in the education of our children. The way we demonstrate character in our daily activities and interactions greatly impacts the success of our learning community.
By focusing on character as we educate our students, every assignment and every interaction opens up the opportunity to build and shape the future, not only for our students but also the larger community of the State of Hawaii. It is in that process of building and demonstrating character that we collectively bring HTA’s vision to life - the vision of being “a community embracing the challenges of today and the opportunities of tomorrow.”
It takes strength of character on the part of every member of our community - teachers, staff members, Learning Coaches, and students - to ensure that HTA is a place where students are empowered to succeed on a social, emotional and academic level. An investment in the character of each and every student at HTA is truly an investment in our future.
We look forward to the character building opportunities that await our community in the 2017-2018 school year and thank you for joining our ‘ohana.
