ABOUT ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY

Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY! As one of the premier independent schools in the nation, we aim to equip students with a vision for the future to “Go Forward with Confidence” (Imua Me Ka Ha’aheo). As a school community we work diligently to fulfill this vision through our school’s mission and core values. IPA’s commitment is to ensure academic excellence, while nurturing and developing students in a learning environment and culture where “values matter and students are valued.”

Located in the heart of Kapolei, IPA is West Oʻahu’s premiere choice for a quality K-12 independent, coed, college preparatory school. We consider ourselves to be one of the premier independent schools in the nation, yet aspire to continually seek to inspire growth and development throughout our entire school community.

ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY’s multisensory and constructivist learning culture and environment encourages students to learn through experimentation to become imaginative independent and self-reliant and self-directed individuals. Curiosity and creativity are nurtured at IPA, along with critical thinking and development of fundamental skills necessary to learn and apply knowledge to real world situations and challenges. The foundation for IPA’s rigorous academic programs begin in elementary grades to enable students to advance to college-level academic expectations by the secondary years.

Mahalo!
