After some public school districts announced they would start the school year with most students at home, Maranatha Christian Academy started fielding calls.
“Enrollment numbers shot up even this week, once the Shawnee Mission school district and others announced they were not going to open in a normal fashion,” Janet Fogh, head of school, said last week. “Three families are here right now touring. We accepted seven or eight different families yesterday. We’re doing tours as fast as we can. It’s really surprising.”
The private school in Shawnee was among the first in the region to bring students back to class, on Aug. 10. Its roughly 320 students are having their temperatures regularly checked, playing sports with precautions, social distancing and wearing masks most of the day, except at gym and recess.
Maranatha is family, it is academic excellence, it is community. MCA has been providing excellence in Christian education in the Shawnee, Kansas, area for almost 45 years.Read More
