School Notes

  • Doris Todd Christian Academy has served the families of Maui and provided a Christ-centered education for over 60 years. Our loving, nurturing teachers, give students a safe, high academic learning environment. They are mentors who are truly invested in each individual student to cultivate faith, love, moral integrity, and academic excellence. Students are given opportunities to put learning into action by reaching out to our community and participating in extra-curricular activities.
  • We have two charming campuses nestled in Paia and Wailuku Town. When you visit, you might see a fourth grader stop playing in order to tie the shoes of a kindergartner; a student sharing lunch with his classmate because they forgot theirs. Doris Todd Christian Academy is a uniquely warm, caring school that motivates and challenges students to grow and mature in all areas of life.
  • Please stop by for a tour - we would be delighted to show you our classrooms and have you meet our students and faculty. We can`t wait to meet you and partner with you in the care of your child!
