  • Good Character is taught and recognized.  We are an inter-denominational Christian school where 27 Evangelical churches are represented in our student body.
  • We use A Becka curriculum, and our classroom format is traditional.
  • Students have the advantage of highly dedicated teachers, small classes, and a loving atmosphere in which to learn.
  • May God guide and direct you as you consider the important task of providing a Biblically-based education for your children.
  • Many years ago when Timothy Dwight was president of Yale University, he said, "Education ought everywhere to be religious education parents are bound to employ no instructors who will not educate their children religiously.
  • To commit our children to the care of irreligious persons is to commit lambs to the superintendency of wolves." Maranatha Academy exists to assist Christian parents in fulfilling their responsibility to provide a Christ-centered educational program integrating academic excellence, spiritual growth and social and physical development.
