Christ’s attitude is reflected everywhere

We invite your child to worship, pray, and spiritually grow together with those who will become his/her lifelong friends. Our desire is for your child to know Jesus Christ and discover the joy of a real and lifelong relationship with Him. We beckon your child to come and learn how to live a godly life and to develop a truly biblical worldview and value system.

MCA offers your child a caring environment where Christ’s attitude is reflected everywhere. We care about each other, pray for each other, and support each other in prayer and biblical understanding.

Your child will want to become an active part of a school where he/she is family and is encouraged to become the “whole” person–spirit, soul and body–that God created them to be. We believe that your child will want to share his/her God-given talents and abilities here with classmates and the community. As your child grows and matures, we believe he/she will want to make a difference in the lives of others by ultimately taking Jesus Christ into the world.

Through a Kingdom Culture that builds a unity of purpose and positive peer pressure, MCA students are bound by common goals and aspirations. Academic achievement is valued and does not conflict with social acceptance here. Each student is challenged and equipped to value all people according to God’s Word.

Our environment is safe and peaceful, a place where students are free to be themselves and explore their ideas and feelings under godly guidance. Students have the freedom to pray and worship without fear of criticism or rejection.

A strong emphasis on volunteerism and service-learning at MCA provides students with multiple opportunities to make a positive impact in the world. In the process, they develop a lifestyle of giving that values the needs of others above their own.

What your child brings to MCA is special and unique, and will impact the lives of others in a way that only he/she can. Your child has a distinctive nature and a God-given personality that we value and need.

Opportunities await for your child to grow in their faith at Maranatha Christian Academy.

CHAPELS

MCA has weekly chapel services for all grades Pre-k through 12.

The upper school chapel services begin with praise and worship led by the student-led Chapel Band and all chapels feature a range of dynamic in-house and guest speakers to motivate and challenge students to continue serving God with all their hearts.

The lower school chapels feature praise and worship led by the sixth grade. They also preform ministry, skits, and open and close chapel as well as greet students at the door when they come in to chapel.

Pre-kindergarten students are instructed in praise, worship, and prayer during chapel. Students are given opportunities to enter into the presence of the Lord, which enhances an intimate relationship with our heavenly Father; knowing Him instead of just knowing about Him. The purpose of this instruction is to teach students to live their lives in daily fellowship with the Father through yielding to the Holy Spirit in praise, worship, and prayer.

All parents are welcome to attend chapel services.

MISSIONS

Providing opportunities for our students to participate in mission trips is an integral part of fulfilling our mission. As seen in MCA’s purpose statement, we desire that our students carry out the Great Commission and learn by our example to place the needs of others above their own needs and wants.

High school students have an opportunity each year over Spring break to travel to Zacatecas, Mexico, where they complete work projects for a local church and minister to children in an orphanage. Additionally, all students are welcomed to participate in mission trips sponsored by Living Word Christian Center’s missions department.
