The mission of the Guidance and College Counseling department is to nurture, guide and advocate for our students and families as they prepare for college, career and life after high school.
In the first year of attendance at Maranatha High School, a personal four-year academic plan in preparation for four-year colleges and universities is developed. This four-year plan will give students and families a road map of which courses will make them eligible, competitive or highly competitive for various categories of colleges and universities. Each year, this four-year plan will be revisited with students and families to ensure adequate preparation.
At the beginning of the school year seniors and their families participate in personal college planning sessions with our guidance counselors. The purpose of these meetings is to review the student’s academic profile, community service, and test scores and assist in the identification of specific schools where admissions applications will be submitted.
Maranatha is also proud to feature NetClassroom for our families. NetClassroom is an Internet based program that allows parents and students to access progress reports that are updated weekly along with a variety of other features.
