Moravian Academy is a church-related school whose Moravian tradition affirms that young people best realize their potential in an atmosphere of love and understanding. We seek to promote the child's full development in mind, body, and spirit.
Moravian Academy is committed to an excellence that is college-preparatory and life-preparatory. That commitment is based first and foremost on our students themselves, their eagerness to learn and to act with love and understanding toward others. They have direct, small-group contact with inspiring teachers who truly know them by name, talent, interest, and need. Our academic and co-curricular programs—the daily qualities that are hard to illustrate as well as the signature features noted below that complement and enrich them—provide the particular content and opportunities for student successes. That foundation—our students and teachers in our high-quality programs—reflects not only our mission of Mind, Body, and Spirit but also the essential capacities for a 21st century school, which can be summarized as ambitious pursuit of complex thinking, respectful and productive relationship with others, and honorable values with a global perspective. Our curriculum is ambitious, leading to college-level courses in the Upper School and admissions to a wide variety of prominent colleges and universities.
