Pillars of Wisdom

Maranatha High School strives to equip our students to lead lives “of purpose and distinction”, as reflected by the character our students exhibit. To that end, we have launched the Pillars of Wisdom, a compilation of character qualities that our students have developed. These are the character qualities that our students want to possess. Maranatha is charged with building and strengthening these character qualities in our students during their high school experience.

The Pillars of Wisdom is integrated into our students’ daily lives -- in the classrooms, on the athletic fields, in student clubs, on the stage, at monthly assemblies, and in our student mentor program. The development of our students’ character is an important component of our school’s mission, the foundation upon which our academic excellence is built, and the cornerstone of the “Maranatha Difference”.

Wisdom has built her house; she has hewn out its seven pillars… (Proverbs 9:1)


God first, others second, me third


Training to improve strength and character


Doing what is right even when nobody is looking


Doing what is right in the face of fear


Unwavering determination


Energetic and unyielding devotion to a cause


Generous guardianship of what we have been given
