List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: What type of student are you looking to admit?

    A: We are seeking students who are interested in growing in their faith, preparing themselves to be accepted to colleges and universities of their choice, being equipped for a vocation, and being involved in community service.
  • Q: Is there Tuition Assistance available to families? What about Scholarships?

    Tuition Assistance is available to families with demonstrated need. Families must apply for tuition assistance at the same time as applying for admission to the school. Maranatha uses a third party application called FAST, where they ask for financial information and tax returns. Students who are accepted into the school will receive their TA award letter within 24 hours of their admission acceptance notification during our Early and Regular admissions seasons. Families need to reapply for tuition assistance every year they are part of the Maranatha community in order to receive assistance.

    Maranatha offers merit scholarships to incoming Freshmen students only, who meet the necessary criteria throughout the admissions process, including transcripts, recommendations, and the scholarship application. For more information, please visit our Scholarships page under Admissions.
  • Q: What is Early Admissions?

    A: Early Admissions is an opportunity for families and students who are interested in attending Maranatha High School to be accepted to our school before the end of the calendar year. Not only do students have a choice of school before the end of their 1st semester of 8th grade, they will also be able to participate in an additional community event in January to get to know their future classmates. On another note, our Merit Scholarships are eligible only to Early Admissions applicants. These students need to submit their admissions materials and scholarship application by the December 1st deadline to be considered. 
  • Q: What is the Admissions process?

    A: The Admissions process begins with submitting the online application. From this point, once the applicant’s admissions file is complete (the online application, reference forms, and transcripts), an admissions meet-up will be scheduled with the family. The interview includes at least one parent and the applicant and takes approximately 30 minutes. This is the time when both the family and the school get to know one another to see if Maranatha is truly the best opportunity for the applicant. Once the admissions interview is completed, Maranatha will communicate with the family by the posted dates listed in the admissions process (Early, Regular, Rolling). Each step along the way the school is in communication with the family as to the progress of the applicant’s file until a decision is reached.
  • Q: I understand your school offers resource assistance for students with learning disabilities. How do you consider students for admittance to this program?

    A: Our school does have learning assistance for students with documented learning disabilities. Families with students who have these needs must apply for this program when applying for admittance to our school. We limit the number of students involved in this program to approximately 5% of the students at each grade level. In considering a student for this program we require current testing (within the past three years) and disclosure of any modifications to the academic curriculum of the student (IEP). There is also an additional fee for this program, of $750 per semester. 
  • Q: Do students have to wear uniforms?

    A: Yes. The dress code is designed to set guidelines for health, safety, and modesty. We believe that students’ performance and attitude are affected by styles of dress and personal grooming. The basic uniform consists of polos of navy blue, white or red and navy blue or khaki pants, shorts, skorts, or skirts. For further information on school uniform requirements, please see our Student Handbook.
