Maranatha Academy sends 306 students to public Universities 

One of the country’s reputable learning institutions, Maranatha Academy Private Schools has stood out to its billing as one of the best by sending 306 students to public higher learning institutions.

Maranatha Academy Managing Director, Dr Ernest Kaonga said he was delighted with the exceptional performance of his institution during the last Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) as they performed well with many students scoring high flying grades that earned them a place at different conventional public universities this year.

Kaonga said this year alone, Maranatha Academy have managed to send a total of 306 students to different universities in Malawi.

Kaonga said: “Out of 306 students who have been selected to various public universities,141 are girls  while 165 are girls. 

“This is no mean achievement and we would like to say thank to the parents who entrusted us with the future of their children.

KAONGA :This is no mean achievement

“To our students, who will forever be part of story and history, we are so proud of their achievement and we wish them all the best as they take the next big step of their lives,” he said.

However, Kaonga explained that he is optimistic that all the 306 students from Maranatha are capable to do well in their new academic sojourn saying that they are all equipped and prepared for any academic challenge.

Both Maranatha Boys and Girls academies have done so well in the examinations and both schools have sent a great number of students to the public universities.

Kaonga said they are particularly pleased that many girls have also been selected to pursue their studies in different universities, at this time, when girls’ access to education is seriously compromised due to a number of factors.

“The school commends the girls at our school for their hard work and for the subsequent remarkable feat. This is a clear sign that the schools are dedicated in offering high quality education to girls.

“This, in essence, contributes to attainment of some of the Millennium Development Goals: girl/women empowerment and poverty reduction.

“There is a popular adage which says when you educate a girl, you educate a nation and we are happy that girls are not lagging behind at Maranatha but in the same fast lane with the boys,” he said.

Kaonga further said that at Maranatha Academy they will strive to thrive in ensuring that they maintain the high standards in a bid to keep on improving other in attaining excellence and continue with the students getting the best grades across all Maranatha schools.

“We will continue to strive for the better, and this is encouraging because it means we are improving every academic year and hopefully next year will be better,” he said

Nationwide, out of 19,760 applications, 8,552 students have been selected.

This is how other reputable schools in the country performed in sending students to public universities, St Mary’s 85, Marist 73, Target Mzuzu 109, Stella Marris 86, Zomba Catholic 80, Likuni 154, Chaminade 132, Mary Mount 112, Atsikana Paulendo 90, and Michiru View 85.
