Carden Academy of Maui is an independent private school offering  superior education to students in Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 8. Our students are encouraged to be independent, self-motivated, inquisitive, and respectful learners.

Our school is based on the philosophy of world-renowned educator, Mae Carden, whose Carden Method recognizes and celebrates the unlimited potential of each child.

We educate the whole child: academically, socially, emotionally, and physically through a proven curriculum that is enriched with foreign language, music, art, dance, drama, and physical education.

Our goal is to provide our students with the knowledge, tools, and foundation necessary to be successful and confident members of society.

Carden Academy instills values and virtues to last a lifetime. Character training is a central element of the educational scheme from the earliest years. Students learn that concern for others enhances their own well-being and enriches their learning experiences.

We are an independent, private school located in the Upcountry Maui area of Pukalani.  Founded in 1998, the school serves children in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 8, with one class per grade and a maximum enrollment of 172 students.

Carden Academy of Maui is a member of the Carden Educational Foundation, and is accredited by the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
