Some of our students participated a unique and special project once again this year. It is called the Memory Project. Our art teacher, Mrs. Leon, receives a few portraits of students from somewhere around the world, this year they were from Syria. Our students paint and/or draw them and send them back. The video shows how powerful this simple act can be.
Here is a quote from our Head of School, Brian Sullivan, “Art is a powerful tool that can be used to communicate a need and educate. We sincerely appreciate and value the work of the Memory Project.”

The focus of this year’s Gala is school security. In the wake of unprecedented situations occurring in schools across the nation, MCA’s goal is to provide the safest and most secure environment for our students to grow spiritually and academically. While the Academy has an excellent safety rating, our goal is to continually improve in this area. Your support through prayer and financial gifts is greatly appreciated.

For the ninth consecutive year, the Maranatha Christian Academy girls’ basketball team has advanced to the State Tournament. This year they won a hard-fought, physical game against Holy Family Catholic School in the Section Final in order to clinch their first appearance in Class AA.
The team, led by seniors Kylie Post (playing at U of MN-Crookston next year) and Jaclyn Jarnot (playing at Monmouth University next year), is deep and fast, yet in their Section Championship Game, they needed to adjust and play a slower methodical game and solid defense. With their hard work, tough schedule that prepared them for high-pressure games, and unwavering belief, they are looking to make a deep run in the tournament.
Good luck ladies. We’ll be cheering you on!
