Learning Centers

The Department's Learning Centers Program provides students and their parents with greater academic choice by creating distinctive, specialized and excellent programs within public education. Learning Centers are established within our schools with each Learning Center organized around a single theme or focus area.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Starting October 10th, Castle Performing Arts Center (CPAC) is offering FREE Saturday performing arts classes for Hawaii public school students! There are thirteen classes being offered! Something for everyone in grades K-12! Four classes are being taught from NYC by theatre professionals!
