Mission Statement

We at Maranatha Christian Academy believe the statement from Proverbs, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” We believe this fact from God’s Word is crucial when executing a high level of education. Therefore, we believe our instruction and teaching must always have Christ and the Scriptures at the heart of our educating.

We look to help students learn how to think not what to think. We want to encourage them to formulate their own opinions based on the truth; how to look at a given situation and determine the best course of action; how to prioritize and execute when given multiple tasks; how to look at a problem and see a solution. Most of all, we want them to leave MCA with the knowledge that living the Christian life is experiencing the best life possible.

Investing in the Future

Maranatha Christian Academy was established in 2013 under the leadership of Dr. Daniel S. Haifley and the Maranatha Baptist Church.

We are expecting big things over the next few years. We have recently moved into a renovated 28,000 sq. ft. facility on the north side of Mattoon. For more information regarding the expansion, contact us today. To give to the project, please visit the donate page.
