Admission Policies

Maranatha Baptist Academy admits students of any race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities made available to students at the school. The following steps must be completed for enrollment into the Academy.

  • Students and parents need to schedule an interview with the Academy administrator.
  • Final acceptance is dependent upon completion of all forms, receipt of transcript and school records, the physical examination form, successful results of any necessary placement testing, and payment of the registration fee.
  • We ask that parents or guardians sign the Statement of Cooperation and that the student signs the Student’s Code of Conduct. The admission procedure cannot be finalized without completion of these forms.
  • Acceptance is dependent upon a clear testimony of faith in Christ and desire and evidence of a Christian testimony.

Financial Information

Tuition may be paid in nine monthly installments beginning in September. If tuition is not paid by the tenth of the month, a $10 late fee will be assessed. Accounts must be paid in full before final report cards, transcripts or diplomas are issued. Accounts of graduating seniors must be paid in full or special arrangements made before they can participate in senior exams or commencement.

If a student is dismissed for any reason, or if a student withdraws, a pro-rated tuition must be paid for attendance for any part of that month. No other fees will be refunded.


All students of MBA must be covered by a health insurance policy. This may be through the parents’ insurance or through a policy available from the College.

Any student participating in athletics must be sure that he or she is covered by insurance for competition in sports. This must be on file in the Academy office prior to participation, including preseason.

Transfer Credits

As an accredited institution, MBA guards its academic credibility very closely. This credibility extends to the transfer process when accepting students from other schools or from homeschool backgrounds. To maintain academic credibility, MBA requires transfer students to supply documentation such as official transcripts, course descriptions, course syllabi, and achievement testing reports. Course credits may be transferred through an official school transcript (if transferring from another school) or by supplying MBA with credible course syllabi and course descriptions (from the course and/or curriculum publisher), and homeschool records (if transferring from homeschool). Transfer credits and letter grades may be transferred to a student’s MBA transcript at the discretion of the administration. Only credits from an official transcript published by a school are given GPA weight.
