MARANATHA ADVENTIST SCHOOL is a Christian school that provides an education for students in kindergarten through the eighth grade. Its purpose is to train youth to know and serve God and to develop responsible citizens.
"True education... is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental and the spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this "world, and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.”
The Seventh-day Adventist Church has been operating schools for 120 years. They currently maintain elementary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities around the world.
Maranatha Adventist School uses textbooks from major publishers for Math, Social Studies, and English classes. The North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists Department of Education has developed textbooks with a Christian perspective for the subjects of Science, Bible, and Reading. Kindergarten through fourth grade are grouped into one of the school's two classrooms. Grades five through eight are grouped in the second classroom. This arrangement results in a family atmosphere where students are associating with others older and younger than themselves in both the classroom and recreation. Students are also grouped in traditional grades, and receive report cards 4 times a year.
