Maranatha Christian School invites applications from experienced leaders with a commitment to Christian education and an inspiring future vision.
Established in 1970, Maranatha Christian School was one of the first Christian schools founded in Melbourne’s south east as a learning community in partnership with home and church, where students are inspired to discover and develop their God-given gifts, abilities and character. Now grown to a thriving, dual campus school, Maranatha caters for students from ELC to Year 12, providing sound Christian education with a focus on individual student academic growth, critical thinking skills and development of co-curricular passions and interests, within a supportive, pastoral environment.

Currently, a spacious campus with a flourishing ELC – 6 student population, the students enjoy a well established kitchen garden with presiding chooks, outstanding Performing Arts Theatre and facilities, state of the art sports centre, and extensive grounds and outdoor spaces.
