Molokai Education Center

E ho’ona’auao honua ‘oiai ma ka hale • A world of knowledge here at home


On an island that is uniquely Hawaiian yet interspersed with a variety of other cultures, Molokai provides a wonderful environment for students. The distractions of a busy, urban lifestyle do not exist. In their place are the serene, rugged beauty of the wild outdoors and a small population whose focus on family and friends is paramount.

Rich in tradition, Molokai is a natural place for learning –  peaceful, friendly, outspoken, confident, and knowledgeable. Realize your greatest potential, find your voice, exercise your passion, and discover it all on the island of Molokai. Education is our kuleana. Come and join us.

Current operating hours:  Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm.  We are closed on weekends and State Holidays.

Tips for Success:

  • Order your books before class starts
  • Check that your financial aid is in order.  Make sure you have no holds on your account before you register for classes.
  • Show up to class.  If you are going to miss your first class, be sure to email your instructor or you will be dropped from the class. Your faculty want to know you and hear from you.  Prepare to contribute to the conversation.  Read ahead and ask questions.
  • Do your homework.  Finish your assignments and turn them in on time.  Find your focus.  Reduce distractions.  Find a good place to study (might we suggest the LRC - Learning Resource Center).
  • Ask Questions.  If you are unsure of how to do something…Ask for help.  The LRC is a great place to start.  
  • Enjoy the experience…Get involved - focus on learning more than on the grade.  Take small steps and treat yourself for your accomplishments.  
  • Success in college is all up to you.  It’s within your reach - You got this!!!

Remember we are all here to help you.  If you need any assistance please stop by the LRC and visit with us.
