Maui Private School Directory

As this blog has evolved, I’ve tried to stick to a few basic rules: the topic must be unique to Maui, and ideally will serve as a resource for others.  As I’ve been involved in helping to promote a private school here on Maui recently, I realized that the other directories of Maui’s private schools are either hard to find, hard to read, out of date or otherwise incomplete.  So, to the best of my ability, here’s a directory of Maui’s private schools, listed alphabetically. Tuitions and deadlines are based on what I could find online, or what I’ve been provided by the school, but please contact schools directly to confirm.  I’ve also included pertinent dates as applicable, of upcoming events, open houses, etc.  To Update or correct a listing please email me at mauiliz77 (at) yahoo (dot ) com

Carden Academy Jamboree – Tickets Now Available!

bendon.jamboree

Tickets are now available for Carden Academy’s annual fundraiser, the Jamboree, to be held on Saturday, April 25!  This is a gala-style event, with live auction, hand-crafted cocktails, a buffet and dancing, but with a unique twist – its a cowboy theme!  Attendees break out their finest cowboy hats and boots, jeans and plaid shirts, and head upcountry to the polo field for this event with a great cause.  This year’s funds raised will go towards tuition assistance, the creation of a new Pre-K classroom, and the ‘greening’ of the campus – making it more energy efficient and healthier for all.

The evening’s activities include a BBQ dinner buffet by Three’s Bar and Grill, hand-crafted cocktails by Dazoo and Ocean Vodka, live music by the Country Knights, silent auction, live auction, and a pie contest!

Tickets range from $100 for a general admission ‘Paniolo’ ticket to $2,000 for a Spurs Sponsorship table for 10 guests, which includes 2 bottles of wine, wait staff at your table, preferred seating around the stage and dance floor, thank you gifts, website acknowledgement and logo placement in program.

Carden Academy Jamboree Tickets Now On Sale!

Carden Academy Jamboree 2014

Usually before Maui’s fancy fundraisers, the big question is, which pair of slippers am I going to wear? (we are a pretty casual group) For next weekend’s 14th Annual Carden Academy Jamboree, the question is, which pair of cowboy boots?  The theme for this popular soiree is ‘Paniolo’, and jeans, cowboy hats and of course boots are all welcomed!  The event takes place at the Oskie Rice Polo Field in Makawao, and features a BBQ dinner by Three’s Bar and Grill and dancing until 11pm with the Country Knights.

Returning this year will be the amazing auction for which the Jamboree is famous, and the homemade pie contest.  In a new spin on an old tradition, the Carden students have again made quilts, but this year they only made two, and they will be part of a special giveaway contest!  The Jamboree supports the programs and tuition assistance at Carden Academy of Maui.  This year’s event will be Friday, April 25, from 5:30 – 11pm.  (Please note the new date for the event, which had to be rescheduled due to a conflicting event)
