Founded in 1970, Maranatha Christian School is the longest serving parent controlled Christian school in Victoria, built on the foundations of Christian discipleship, personal integrity, academic excellence and community service. At Maranatha, we seek to honour God in all we do. This underpins the way we teach, the way we care for students and the high expectations we have both for our students and ourselves. Most importantly, it underpins our partnership with parents to ensure that your children are fully prepared for the next stage of life.
Maranatha celebrates over 45 years of Christian educational leadership, with its rigorous academic pathway that challenges students to think creatively and apply what they have learned. The school is committed to inspiring and equipping our students to achieve personal bests in all they do and so become leaders in their field.
At Maranatha Christian School staff closely monitor student progress, achievement, welfare and Christian growth. Discipline is firm, fair and in harmony with a Christian ethos.
Teachers and parents support one another through open communication.
We have found Maranatha Christian School students go on to make valuable contributions and provide leadership in all areas of life.
To be a student at Maranatha means to access opportunity - the opportunity to learn, the opportunity to develop, the opportunity to serve, the opportunity to grow and the opportunity to excel. These opportunities are accessed by participation in a rigorous, challenging and engaging curriculum, as well as a wide range of co-curricular programs. These opportunities help children develop their personal faith and so build the necessary skills to be successful in life, no matter what pathway God may lead them.

Technology is a vital part of our modern world - as a result, we are in the midst of some exciting changes to the educational landscape. With the increased use of technology, more class time can be used for discovery, collaboration and creation.
To facilitate the use of technology in the classroom, it is compulsory for all students in Year 9 and Year 10 to bring their own digital device to school. Minimum specifications are provided to ensure students have a device that will operate effectively within the school environment.
Year 10 students have the opportunity to participate in one of two mission programs at the end of Term 2. The first gives students the opportunity to travel to Thailand for a missions awareness trip. The second involves serving our local community. During this program students will have the chance to work with and plan activities for primary aged students, be involved in preparing meals for the less fortunate, assist in local community gardens and various other local activities. It is the aim of both programs that students are given the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, gain a new perspective on life and develop a determination to not take what they have found for granted.
