The Mana College Academies
Supportive and Inclusive Community
Mana College realises that a full educational experience needs to connect with students’ strengths, interests and passions.
Every Wednesday afternoon
Every Wednesday afternoon our school provides a series of Academies that provide all students – juniors and seniors – with an opportunity to dive into an area especially relevant to them.
Academies are a way for us to build breadth and depth in the curriculum. It is also a way for students – of any age – to be leaders for other students. We have a diverse range of Academies in operation ranging from those that focus on the arts – such as those for our Major Production, Kapahaka, Community Art Projects and Exhibitions, through to Academically focused academies on Algebra and getting ready to university. There are loads of sports-based academies too – whether your interests are in excelling in rugby, basketball, boxing, fitness, volleyball or football.
