Mānoa Academy in the High School is an innovative program that brings the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UH Mānoa) directly to the high school classroom. Offered by the College of Social Sciences, in partnership with high schools across the state of Hawaiʻi, Mānoa Academy in the High School is a dual credit program that allows students to earn high school and university credits at the same time with little to no cost. Taught by UH Mānoa professors, often in collaboration with teachers at the partner high schools, the program lets high school juniors and seniors begin their journey toward a baccalaureate degree in a way that fits conveniently into their daily lives.
The Mānoa Academy in the High School collaborates with schools across Hawaiʻi to provide a wide array of courses and educational experiences. The following schools provide dual credit (high school credit) through Mānoa Academy.
*Students who are not enrolled at a partner high school may apply as an independent student through Mānoa Academy Online. UH Mānoa tuition and fees will apply.
