We live not only for our personal benefit or gain but with the ultimate goal of benefiting others through our work.

Intellectual depth

Our goal is not just to possess a wealth of knowledge but also the ability to think deeply. It is also knowing how much we don’t know and thus approaching all endeavors with a heart of humility. 


We work and study with the mindset to never give up and to overcome all obstacles on the pathway to success. As an institution, we provide opportunities and encouragement for students to always push forward. 


We have hope and assurance in what we are doing and learning, where we are going, and faith in God for our futures. We are faithful to each other as a community, treating others with respect and always working with integrity to cultivate trust. 


By 2030, Mahanaim aspires to become a degree-granting, accredited institution that embraces a diverse student population from New York and worldwide. By providing affordable programs, Mahanaim will bridge the educational gap in underserved communities. 


Mahanaim fosters excellence through affordable educational offerings that focus on enriching the mind within a faith-oriented environment, cultivating learners who possess comprehensive knowledge, skills, and a resilient mindset.
