We are grateful for the many friends, alumni, parents and family members who generously provide additional resources to undergird our life-transforming mission. Your gifts provide budget relieving support that is sourced through our school’s Annual Giving Program.
“The Maranatha Experience” is a distinguished college preparatory education established within an intentional Christ-revering context. Since 1964, our mission to provide this experience to all qualified students has brought continual blessing of tremendous growth and expansion to our school. With such blessings of growth, and our commitment to maintain affordability and quality, comes the need for ongoing support through charitable giving.

Gifts made to the Maranatha Fund help our students to be Students of Christ, Intentional Learners, Skilled Communicators, and Invested Citizens, while providing access to Maranatha's transformational experience to students who cannot afford to attend.

    Challenged to be Christ's disciples

    Faculty quality and retention are paramount to guiding and discipling students.

    Maranatha is committed to offer teacher salaries that are competitive with area public high schools.

    Our faculty are mission-driven and desire to stay at MHS. Maranatha’s leadership wants to assure teachers do not have to make the difficult choice to teach elsewhere in order to support their families.

Your Gift Matters

For nearly sixty years, Maranatha has stood together with parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends with the commitment and belief that our youth deserve a transformational, Christ-revering, Christ-centered college preparatory education.

Thanks to the generous gifts of many parents, alumni, and our entire community, we are able to sustain the life changing experience of Maranatha High School and maintain the highest standards of excellence across all programs so our students can fulfill their potential. Your gifts directly impact students, faculty, programs, and facilities at Maranatha.
