Maranatha Christian Academy believes the arts contribute to a creative, expressive, and well-rounded scholar. Here, students have many opportunities to express their artistic gifts and challenge themselves in our exceptional fine arts program.
The Visual Arts
Maranatha’s visual art program gives students of all levels the opportunity to choose art electives from drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, textile arts, and photography.
Experience Maranatha, held in the spring, highlights the achievements of students prekindergarten through Grade 12.
Maranatha's Studio Artist program is for the advanced art student who is developing a portfolio. The themes and mediums used by each student are individually determined by the student and teacher.
The Performing Arts
Maranatha’s experienced teachers train, shape, and refine talented, young performing artists in an academic climate that nurtures growth in the disciplines of theater, band, and choir.
Learning to act can be a stretch for anyone at any age. With the help of our teaching staff, acting students take risks and grow as performing artists. Our student actors learn to express themselves on stage in ways where the audience genuinely believes. Drama is more than acting, it teaches students how people think and helps develop empathy for others.
Music is a very influential and important aspect of a student’s life. Mastering an instrument, learning to work together in a band, or being part of a choral group can have a lasting effect and improve learning capacity in students.
Students in band and choir participate in performances throughout the year including Fall Fest, Homecoming, and Spring Splash, as well as the Christmas and Experience Maranatha concerts.
Jazz Band challenges students to learn and experience the basics of jazz music through performance. Students play a wide variety of genres: blues, swing, funk, rock, Latin.
High School Concert Band develops performance skills in a large group setting with an emphasis on instrumental mastery and technique.
Chapel Band students acquire leadership skills as they lead and perform at the weekly chapel services. This band holds auditions to fill the limited number of spots.
Choir is a great option for students not interested in playing an instrument. Participants develop sight-reading and vocal performance skills while preparing a variety of concert pieces.
