School Notes:

Maranatha Christian Academy, a pre-kindergarten through Grade 12 school, exists to provide students an academically rigorous college-preparatory education in a distinctly Christian environment of high values, character development, and exceptional student culture.

The Acadmey's mission is fulfilled through these core values. We purpose to: 1. Assist in the development of the "whole" person - spirit, soul, and body. 2. Assist each student in establishing a real and unshakable relationship with Jesus Christ by (1) presenting the gospel, (2) training them to use the Word of God with authority, and (3) promoting the development of a truly biblical worldview and value system. 3. Produce students who are academically qualified: well-educated, self-directed, and life-long learners. 4. Act as an extension of the home and church by instilling Christian values and thus, together, equip the next generation to live godly lives in an increasingly ungodly world. 5. Train young people to be positive role models and influential leaders who will carry out the "Great Commission." (Matthew 28:19-20) 6. Lead students by way of example and instruction into a lifestyle that places the needs of others above their own needs and wants. Maranatha Christian Academy. Academics. Faith. Excellence.

The quality of teachers at MCA is like no other. Each and every staff member truly cares for my children. Where else can you get the best education, teachers who love your kids AND have teachers who will pray your kids through their ups and downs in life. I feel blessed that my kids attend MCA.

In MCA''s mission statement it states its an academically rigorous college-prep school. As a parent, I couldn''t agree more. You will definitely get your money''s worth having your children attend MCA. Check out all MCA has to offer you and your family, you won''t regret it.
