2022-2023 School Year

The mission of Maranatha Christian School is 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. MCS was established in 1972 which makes this our 50th year of serving our community with excellent education. There are approximately 300 students in our childcare-12th grade program. The school is a 13 acre campus with three main buildings along with athletic fields.

At Maranatha Christian School, class sizes are small, allowing our teachers to actively involve each student in the learning process. MCS teachers have time to know each student and their special gifts and provide support and mentoring. Faculty and staff interact with students in a number of different roles and invest daily in seeing our students succeed.

MCS is fully accredited through the South Carolina Association of Christian SchoolsAmerican Association of Christian Schools , & the American Christian Honor Society.
