Biblical worldview and Christian character
Maranatha Christian Academy follows a strong program focused on spiritual development of all students. The program starts in our Kinder Prep and continues through high school.
Maranatha Kinder Prep helps to develop Christian character and conduct, obedience to parents, respect for authority and appreciation for America and the freedoms we enjoy. Bible stories and prayer are an integral part of the program.
Spiritual development in the Elementary begins with a focus on developing a biblical worldview. Careful attention and programing focuses on training for the Christian life. We understand that God through the Holy Spirit must first awaken the heart, then students must be instructed to see life God’s way, and then we must help them walk in obedience to His commands.
MCA’s Secondary school’s goal is to see lives radically transformed by God. We accomplish this goal through godly faculty and staff speaking the truth and modeling lives that seek to pattern after Jesus. We also leverage intentional programming in chapels and homeroom devotions, mission trips and service projects, small group devotions, and Bible classes. We recognize a critical component of spiritual development occurs as teachers reveal God through the subject areas in all the disciplines and as coaches help students apply those principles in activities.
