History

Maranatha Christian School has been used of God to train thousands of boys and girls in the Florence County area for five decades. MCS is a ministry of the First Free Will Baptist Church. The fall of 2021 marks the start of the 50th school year of Maranatha Christian School.

The school consists of childcare facilities for babies as young as six weeks, academic classes beginning with children two years of age, kindergartens, and grades 1 through 12.

MCS relocated in 1980 to 2624 West Palmetto Street. We have a beautiful 13-acre campus consisting of three buildings and sports fields.

The first graduating class of Maranatha was the class of 1974.  Throughout the years of the school’s existence, MCS graduates have distinguished themselves in many areas.  Because of the school’s longevity, MCS graduates are now sending their children and grandchildren to the school.
