Makua Lani submits offer for Hualalai Academy campus


Makua Lani Christian Academy has submitted an offer for the Hualalai Academy campus, after Kamehameha Schools officials decided against purchasing the property.

Hualalai Academy announced the change Friday afternoon.

If the sale is completed, Makua Lani officials said they would move to the Hualalai campus this summer, with the intent of opening for classes in late summer. Kamehameha Schools withdrew its offer earlier this week.

Hualalai officials announced last fall they would be closing the high school because of financial problems. In January, they announced the entire school would close at the end of the year, and that bank and private loans were being used to keep the doors open until then.
