Myron B. Thompson Academy (MBTA) is an online-hybrid accredited public charter school which established the Thompson Extension Academy (TEA) in 2007, in partnership with the Hawai`i Virtual Learning Network (HVLN), as a program to provide online courses to the students of Hawai`i.
During the regular school year, Thompson Extension Academy (TEA) offers a limited selection of MBTA’s online courses to students registered at other Hawai'i DOE or Public Charter schools.
In 2008, Thompson Extension Academy debuted an online summer program which welcomed students from Private, DOE, and Public Charter schools throughout Hawai`i. After the success of the first summer program, the extension school has hosted a summer program each year since. Summer School Program updates are posted to the MBTA website in the Spring around the ending of February.
