What We Believe

Maranatha Christian Academy is a traditional school based on Christian values. Our foundation is the knowledge that God made us all unique with an individual purpose. We recognize this uniqueness means that not all students learn the same way. That is why MCA strives to take the individualized learning approach when it comes to education.

We believe that in-person learning is key to a child’s academic growth. Our classroom style teaching utilizes the Abeka Book curriculum allowing for some classes to be taught live and others through DVD. You can visit abekabook.com for more curriculum information.
