Meet Our Faculty and Staff

The staff members at Maranatha Christian Academy represent the rich diversity of churches in Windsor-Essex. They are born-again believers with a personal story to share and a passion to serve Christ. They want to teach our students from a Christian perspective, encouraging students to excel academically but also helping them to understand the brokenness in our world and how a responsible Christian can respond.
