A Message From Our Principal

I am so excited as we begin a new year at Maranatha Christian School, and there are so many exciting new things coming this year! Our renovations are underway in our pre-school building, and we have some new faces joining our team as well. Our theme this year is to “REIGNITE” and to get on fire for God like never before. We are staying strong to support our Mission Statement to provide quality education in a Christ-centered environment in order to reach students for Christ and equip them to serve God and impact the world through Biblical thought and action. The three words: EQUIP, SERVE, and IMPACT will guide us as we strive for spiritual and academic excellence. We remain strong with an amazing team for the 2023-2024 school year, and I am looking forward to seeing each of you at our mandatory orientation on August 14th.
