Mid-Pacific Institute - Innovators. Artists. Individuals.

Mid-Pacific is a school with a rich history of innovation focused on what our students are learning and how they are learning. We live in a world of evolving technology. Our faculty wholly embraces this evolving platform, transporting students into the future. With our immersive technology programs -- utilizing state-of-the-art equipment -- innovation on the Mid-Pacific campus is scanned digitally, printed in 3-D and experienced in virtual reality. The Mid-Pacific classroom is an environment where learning is fun and engaging; where students are challenged to question, inquire, and imagine.

Mid-Pacific is a school with a reputation as Hawai‘i’s leader in the arts. We have excelled in cultivating the artist within. Artistic exploration begins in revealing one’s innate talent and perfecting one’s craft; the process is an art form in itself. From athletics to ceramics, Mid-Pacific provides coaches and faculty, top experts in their fields, to support and ensure that each individual student pushes their limits to their best abilities in a safe and nurturing environment. By teaching our students to be artists striving for excellence, the world becomes their canvas of unlimited creation and exploration.

Mid-Pacific cultivates students to be an eclectic group of educated individuals. We are proud of our diverse mix of students from countries that span the globe. They experience globalism and culturalism every day. We nurture each student to be who they are, to explore and develop their unique pursuits, and to express their opinions and ideas. A Mid-Pacific student dares to be the bold and unique individual.
