Complete in Christ
The essence of the educational philosophy at Maranatha Christian Academy can be found in Colossians 1:28-29: “We proclaim Him admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect and complete in Christ.”
“Complete” Maranatha Students are…
Committed Christians who have accepted the call of Christ for their life and manifest the fruits of the Spirit. They are growing in the knowledge of God’s Word, offering prayers of praise, thanksgiving, and petitions for themselves and others, and who are sharing their testimony and faith. It is within this context that the remaining characteristics of the student become most meaningful.
Competent Students who demonstrate mastery of essential skills in reading, verbal and written communication, mathematics, techniques and habits of study, and the use of technology, requisite to advanced education and/or vocational training.
Christian Visionaries who adopt Christian values, to formulate a positive vision for themselves and their future, set priorities and goals, create options, and assume continuing responsibility for pursuing these goals while monitoring and evaluating their progress.
Concerned Citizens who take the initiative to use their time, energies, and talents to improve the welfare – spiritually, physically, and emotionally – of themselves and others in their church, community, and global environment.
Complex Thinkers who develop and use multiple frames of reference to research, evaluate, integrate, and apply available information and resources in reasoning, decision-making, and complex problem solving.
Collaborative Contributors who use effective leadership and relational skills to foster, develop, and sustain supportive relationships in the diverse settings of family, church, and society; who value differing points of view and seek peaceful resolutions to conflict.
