Maranatha Academy Reviews

We are so fortunate to have two students at Maranatha Christian Academy (MCA). We have been impressed by the quality of the education, spiritual development, and academic faculty and leadership. Both of our kids have excelled in the classroom, developed their leadership skills and worldview, while also participating at a very high level in athletics. Our kids have participated in football, baseball, basketball, soccer, performing arts, mission trips and volleyball. Our kids have thrived at MCA and have made lifelong friends and mentors that have encouraged them to be better servant leaders. I would highly recommend MCA to any Kansas City family looking for a strong academic environment that also equips kids and young adults to be world changers. Go Eagles!

Our family has been attending MCA for 10 years now and couldn’t be happier! We are thankful for the Biblical world view that is taught along with a strong curriculum. Our children are surrounded by wise mentors who pour love and encouragement into them in a daily basis. For a small school, the music department is outstanding! We are also very happy with the athletics department and the coaches who round off their experience. Our children have had the opportunity to be involved in many extra-curriculur things, such as band, choir, baseball, basketball, cheer, track, cross country, and more! MCA is more than a school. It’s a home, a family of caring people!
We love that Maranatha is a Christ-centered school with a top-notch education! A Biblical worldview is woven throughout every class, sport, performance, and activity. Our girls absolutely love their teachers! They are challenged to grow in their Christian faith through chapel, service projects and Bible classes. And I don’t want to fail to mention MCA’s althletics. There are tons of activities for the students to get involved with outside of the classroom.

We just love MCA!
