Why Fast Forward?
Save Time & Money
High school students receive a 50% tuition discount on college classes and do not pay room and board fees. The total savings on your freshman year of college can amount to around $12,000!
Graduating college a year sooner also means that you can move on into your career or graduate school a year sooner. Moving on into the ministry that God has for you and having an extra year of income makes these classes worth it even more.

"I have greatly enjoyed the atmosphere of Christian love that fills Maranatha Online, and it has helped me reach my education goals. Thanks to Maranatha Online, I will have dozens of credits by time I formally start college this next fall. High school was going very rough for me, as my mother and I struggled to continue my homeschool education into advanced courses. Maranatha Online, with its homeschool friendly system, saved my high school and enabled me to continue receiving Christian education that was also academically rigorous. I don't know where I'd be if it weren't for discovering the very friendly and workable world of Maranatha Online."
