Return to Campus Updates

07-13-2020 update

We want to extend our sincere gratitude for the flexibility and resilience you have shown as our community adapted to the realities of COVID-19.
Throughout this past year, I have been amazed by the strength of our community physically apart but spiritually together! We admire the graduating Class of 2020 for their dedication and poise in completing their high school experience. Our current students and parents demonstrated their determination to succeed in a completely new learning environment. We thank our teachers and staff for their commitment to the outstanding personalized education which is the Maranatha Difference! 
In preparation for a successful start on August 14th, Maranatha High School is committed to providing effective health and safety protocols per the CDC and applicable federal, state, and local agencies. We speak for everyone when we say we are committed to bringing our students and staff back to campus as safely as possible. During the last week of July, a detailed plan for returning students will be sent out regarding a modified Uprising and other upcoming back to school events. 
We continue to provide Christ-centered high-quality teaching and learning strategies, effective technology, and opportunities for student life experiences. At this time, we are planning to have our students on campus with a “Hyflex” schedule. For a majority of classes, students will have options to the following three learning environments: 
  • Live: on-campus, smaller classes, with social-distancing. 
  • Synchronous: at home, live lectures via Zoom. 
  • eLearning: online learning for international students not able to be in the country or domestic students at home. 
This may change as new regulations are put in place or new directives are given by health agencies at all levels. 
As we continue to move forward, despite the challenges, I encourage you to remember that it is ultimately Christ who gives us the strength to overcome. Paul writes of this perspective in Philippians 4:11-13: “Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am in. I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” 
Be Strong!
