International Student Admissions
Maranatha High School has a global vision
to bring Christ to the world
and does accept international students.
Maranatha High School welcomes international boarding students from around the world. Currently, Maranatha has students from Benin, China, Honduras, Japan, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Taiwan, and Thailand. We issue a limited number of I-20’s to college preparatory diploma-seeking students. Green card students are also admitted under the supervision and support of our international student program.
Maranatha is looking for the following kind of students:
- Representative of a variety of countries
- Academically motivated and successful
- Ready for full immersion classes taught in English
- Emotionally and socially mature
- Willing to get involved in curricular and co-curricular activities
- Respectful of world cultures and values
- Open to studying and participating in a Christian environment
One of the unique features of Maranatha’s International Student Program is our HomeStay program. Instead of a dorm setting, we believe international students living with American families provides a much better environment conducive for learning and a more focused social and emotional support for thriving as a student at Maranatha High School. Host families are chosen after background and reference checks, and personal interviews. Orientation and ongoing support is provided to host families as well. Maranatha works in partnership with My American School , an independent organization to place International Students in loving Christian homes .
We welcome you to explore the opportunities of our International Student Program.
