INTERNATIONAL STUDENT PROGRAM
The Vision of Maranatha is to impact our world for Jesus Christ. We believe that inviting students from around the world helps us accomplish that Vision. Our U.S. students learn about other cultures and become comfortable interacting with them. The students from around the world enrich the culture of Maranatha and are provided training that will help them bring glory to God in their home lands and utilize all their talents, skills and intellect to bless mankind.
We have great families that will welcome your children into their homes for the school year. This will allow your student to become fully exposed to American Culture, the Midwest (it is much different here in Kansas than what you would experience in say, New York, and we believe that is a great thing!), and family life in our community.
MCA is a school that loves the diversity that God created in people. We firmly believe that each child that enters our school enriches our culture, our hearts and our minds. Please carefully consider MCA as the place that will love, educate and enrich the life of your child. It is the expectation of MCA that your child will graduate from MCA.
