our vision

Me te mōhio i heke mai i tēna reanga, i tēna reanga, i tēna tūmatohi ana i te tūāpapa o te panoni.  Te kaupapa ia he whai i “Te Ara Tika”.

With knowledge passed down from generation to generation, we make our stand on the platform for change.  The kaupapa is always to walk in “the Right Path”.

Our vision is to create a positive platform for change that is globally recognised, firmly supports and encourages one person, one family, one community at a time to find their path and journey to success.

The Right Path will involve enriching our rangatahi through Māori based values and innovative and modern technologies to enable them to achieve their potential, to contribute to their families and communities and to aspire to a future that it positive, fulfilling and beneficial both for them and for society.

our commitment

The Academy is committed to advancing the cultural, academic, physical, spiritual and social needs of Māori and Pasifika youth through educational, cultural and work related programmes and projects.  Through this commitment, the Trust proposes to re-engage Māori and Pasifika youth and improve outcomes for them individually, their families and their communities.
