Kauai School of Art and Academics is designed to inspire life-long learners, developing the WHOLE child through the five senses, project-based lessons, academic curriculum, cultural studies, movement arts and outdoor environmental awareness studies. Our academic program provides four main areas of knowledge.  The first one is Montessori Math, with hands-on tactile learning, the second one, is Jacobs Ladder Gifted and Talented Students Language Arts curriculum, which is designed to deepen students understanding of their own thought processes, morals, values, ideas, and discernment.  The third area is science, we utilize  “The Magical Garden” curriculum which includes a vast project-based thematic approach, utilizing the entire kingdom of Earth and Sky. The fourth area we cover is cultural and environmental studies. This includes indigenous teachings from cultural around the world as well as Hawaiian mele, olelo, hula, lau'lapaou and ho'o'pono'pono.

Every other Friday we offer field trips and provide enrichment activities that correlate to the seasons, solar system, agricultural and oceanic motions. 

The artistic portion of our program includes: Visual arts, movement arts, music, yoga, acro-yoga, aerial silks, gymnastics, singing, instruments, creative movement, ballet, tap, hip hop, modern and lyrical dance, theater arts, painting, crafting, weaving, and more. 


We function as private performing arts and academic academy and keep small class sizes to provide the highest quality education possible. Our 2-semester program requires a 10-month commitment from every family. At the end of each semester, the students provide a presentation of what they learned at our annual Winter and Spring recital.


Kauai School of Art and Academics recognizes that every child has an innate curriculum and a passion to learn what they are uniquely here to do. We strive to provide students with the the exact information for their personal expansion as well as keep them up to date on grade level academics. Subjects are designed to inspire life-long learners, independent thinkers, question askers, leaders and ultimately conscious healthy creators of a more joyful reality.


Our multiage classroom will nurture your Child’s divine intelligence and inherent gifts as it encourages social and emotional development, leadership, responsibility, a sense of caring, and the ability to build authentic relationships with self and others. Lasting friendship and a feeling of family are inherent in this type of environment.


Our patient and compassionate teachers recognize every child is unique and has an individual pattern and timing for increased awareness, growth and capacity to learn. Each day we diligently set the stage to evolve the consciousness of the student’s intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. As a result, students look forward to attending school each day and become inspired artist, excellent communicators, confident learners and heart centered conscious co-creators.
