School Reviews

We are glad our 3 children have the opportunity to attend a Christian school from pre-K - 12th grade. MCA teachers are the school''s best assets and truly care for and pray for our children in addition to encouraging them to academic excellence. All of my children are involved in sports there as well and each have an opportunity for playing time under godly, encouraging and talented coaches. The school''s values correspond to our values at home - so there is continuity between what they learn at school and at home. This will set a firm foundation for life and service to Jesus Christ in whatever vocation they eventually choose. MCA has been worth the investment. Never say "I can''t afford Christian school" - God always makes a way where there seems to be no way. You can''t afford to lose your children to the world.

I have 2 children at Maranatha and they absolutely love it! They have been going there since Kindergarten (now 4th and 5th grade) and have met some wonderful friends and have had great teachers. Their teachers truly have a heart to serve, teach, and care for the kids. If you are looking for a great Christian education that is less expensive than other schools, I highly recommend this school. Their academics are outstanding, had a community culture, and awesome faculty.

Maranatha Christian Academy has been a blessing to our family. The school reinforces what we teach our daughters in the home. Their Christ-centered approach to education has been a very positive experience for our two girls and has shaped their Godly character. We are confident that our daughters will bring the knowledge and experiences gained from MCA to flourish at the college level.

Our family is very pleased to be a part of Maranatha Christian Academy. The teachers/faculty are easy to communicate with and have the students'' best interests at heart. Their mission is on target with ours in wanting to raise up our children as world changers through Jesus Christ our Savior.
