Maranatha Christian Academy was established to provide Christian education that will lead children to Christ, that will teach them to follow God's Word, and that will prepare them academically to serve God wherever He leads them.
All education takes place within some philosophical framework.
For the Christian, that framework is found in the Bible.
A truly Christian philosophy of education must find its starting point in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments.
At Maranatha, the educational process is expressed by means of three distinct building blocks: Biblical Philosophy, the foundation; Biblical Values System, the beliefs; and Biblically directed Lifestyle, the Christian walk.
