COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

Last year, Maranatha's ability to quickly pivot and provide on-campus, in-person classes in a safe and secure environment was a testimony to its never-fail mindset. As we approach the 2021-22 school year, the school plans to welcome students and staff back for an innovative educational experience grounded in Christian faith. Learn More

From Maranatha Christian Academy

Since when has the way things have always been done a good enough reason to keep doing them? At Maranatha, we’re not afraid of standing for something different—and maybe that’s exactly what makes all the difference. Here, excellence is measured not only by the obligatory test scores and sky-high academic standards, but by the unquantifiable. Curiosity. Perseverance. Faith. We’ve built a place where our students learn from themselves, each other, and all of us, a place where failure is embraced and big questions serve as golden opportunities for teachers to show wide-eyed minds where to look, but not what to see. If this sounds like a fresh and intentional approach that’s not at all what you thought about school, then we’ve reached our passing grade. Because that’s precisely the point.

Maranatha's mission: We are an influential school of collaborators, innovators, and explorers grounded in Christian faith, empowering co-creators of tomorrow.
