Careers at MCA

Welcome to Maranatha

Maranatha Christian Academy is redefining what school is and can be. We are ready to occupy a space in education where curiosity is applauded, discovery is championed, and influencers are shaped. Our focus is not on what is immediately in front of us, but rather on the vision God has challenged us to pursue for our future.

You see, we are chasing after something more worthwhile than the sea of sameness found in education today—possibility, discovery, and being the people/place that ultimately changes our students for the better. In doing so, we are seeking teachers to join our innovative, forward-thinking, and creative community all based in a biblical worldview.

If this sounds like a distinctively fresh, particularly intentional approach, then consider joining our team. Thank you for your interest in developing the future leaders of tomorrow.

In His Service,

Deb Larson
Head of School


Make a Difference. Change a Life.

Maranatha Christian Academy is truly a place unlike any other. Here, we embrace innovation, ideation, and imagination. Maranatha has been and will continue to challenge the status quo in the education space as we know it. What we have come to find out is people are hungry for this new approach to educating their children, resulting in an ever-increasing enrollment. We also have learned our staff is equally as hungry to create the next generation of world-changers.

Are you interested in working at our highly innovative Christian school? Please view the criteria and follow the link in each job description to apply for our current positions. If there are no current positions, let us know you’re interested in being a changemaker by filling out a general employment application. We're always looking for qualified professionals to join our team! 


Is it work? Or fulfilling your calling?

Our staff, or better yet, our family, is a unique bunch. Yes, they are extremely qualified and masters of their craft, but they all possess special qualities—a true love for learning, fervent faith, tenacity, and most of all, a confidence God has called them to Maranatha. As a school, however, we do not simply rely on what our staff members bring, but we cultivate their talents and broaden their skill set with robust continual professional development programs.

Support. Opportunities. Growth.

One thing research tells us about teaching is that it’s highly complex and isolating at times. We are changing this narrative at Maranatha. We provide our staff members with numerous opportunities for growth, community, and development, while offering the support needed to become all that God has called them to be.

F.I.R.S.T. Program

F.I.R.S.T. stands for Forum for Inducting, Retaining, and Supporting Teachers. This program is Maranatha’s state and regionally recognized onboarding, mentoring, and support program for instructional staff in their first three years at MCA.

Innovation Incubators

Innovation. Change. Progress. All words that are used more and more frequently in every industry. At Maranatha Christian Academy, we have identified the need to develop a new, innovative approach to education to remain a leader in the field. In doing so, we realize that it is imperative to provide our teachers with the tools to teach in ways that maybe have not been considered in the past. Innovation Incubators are comprehensive design thinking cohorts where teachers learn changemaker processes (problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and more) that transfer immediately into the classroom.

Mini-Grant Program

Forward thinking, collaboration, and creativity are showcased in our mini-grant program. Staff members are encouraged to apply for mini-grants ranging from $$500–$$1,500 to innovate in their classrooms while providing additional compensation.

Awards of Excellence

Awards of Excellence recognizes teachers in categories such as education excellence, leadership, and innovation in the classroom based on peer nominations. Recipients receive bonus checks of $$1,000 at an end-of-the-year luncheon.

Compensation and Benefits

Maranatha offers a competitive salary and benefits structure including annual salary increases. Instructional staff also receive a salary increase upon completion of postgraduate work.

Depending on position, benefits may include:

  • Health Care and Dental Insurance
