Parent Conferences – October 4 & 5

Parent Conferences – October 4 & 5

Parent-Teacher Conferences are one of the most important events in the academic year. They offer us an opportunity to deepen our partnership, collaborate, and align our efforts to see your child succeed: academically, emotionally, spiritually, and socially at Maranatha Christian Academy (Brooklyn Park, MN).

Partnering with parents is one of the Academy’s core values. One way that we do this is by meeting our parents at Parent-Teacher Conferences. These conferences are deliberately scheduled during the sixth week of the school calendar. By design, it allows for an early conversation, time to review progress, identify useful insights for immediate or clear next steps, and a chance to pray together. When parents, teachers, and administrators work in concert the results are always beneficial for the student.

Lower School conference schedules were sent out to parents via email from the Lower School offices and are by appointment only.

Upper School conferences are held in an open format in the gym. No appointment is necessary.

Upper School Times for conferences will be:

  • Thursday, October 4 from 2-8:30 p.m.
  • Friday, October 5 from 12-6 p.m.

We look forward to seeing everyone for these important meetings.

It is your day to Be Brilliant.

Maranatha Christian Academy, a pre-kindegarten through Grade 12 college-prep school located in Brooklyn Park, MN, is hosting an Open House on Tuesday, October 30 at 7 p.m. This is a great opportunity to see if the Academy is a good fit for your family and if your family is a good fit for the Maranatha.

The night will begin at 7 p.m. with a brief presentation in the Upper School Learning Commons, followed by tours, with a continual Q & A, given by our departmental principals.

This is a great opportunity to get a jump on the 2019-2020 academic year and reserve a place for your student. Please note that limited space remains for certain grades for the 2018-2019 academic year.

We look forward to seeing you.


Meet Maranatha – October 31 at 9:30 a.m.

Meet Maranatha – October 31 at 9:30 a.m.


Meet Maranatha is a relaxed, yet informative, open house event that gives prospective families an opportunity to meet current families, have a cup of coffee with the head of school, and go on a tour during school hours with our principals. This is a great way to “Meet Maranatha,” and see if the Academy is a good fit for your student!

Our next Meet Maranatha will take place on Wednesday, October 31 at 9:30 a.m. at the Coffee House in the Living Word Lobby.

Current families: this is a great opportunity to think of someone you can invite to “Meet Maranatha.”
