From Moravian Academy

At Moravian Academy we develop students’ curiosity and creativity, problem-solving and perseverance, critical thinking and empathy —laying the groundwork to not merely succeed but to thrive.

It begins with curiosity. A three-year-old relishes her first school experience in the sensory adventure that is Primer. A second grader gleefully learns about history from the people who made it—who appear as speaking images on his iPad. At Moravian, a spirit of inquiry is taught through our culture of curiosity that makes learning engaging and exciting.

It continues with curiosity. “Middlers” devour current events in a fantasy geopolitics league, while seniors collaborate with kindergarteners, discovering—and rediscovering—the magic of storytelling. Beyond acquiring knowledge and skills, our students shape their education and venture into the unknown.

At Moravian, curiosity never ends. Our graduates achieve individually defined success in college and through lives of continuing exploration.

    Moravian Academy Reviews

    Teachers are very caring, very dedicated and student to teacher ratio is a big plus. Weekly chapel messages are a nice touch and they remain appropriately nondenominational. Unfortunately, it seems money talks as is the case in many high cost private schools, where the big donators' snobby, mean daughters are never held accountable for their actions. Competitive levels during routine things like gym activities and grades can be daunting to kids who just want to learn and enjoy school. Exclusive menacing cliques are the norm, and are not noticeably discouraged, despite different yearly "themes" like "love and understanding". If your kid doesn't follow the head honcho and does not handle overly strong personalities effectively yet , watch out. She'll be excluded from everything socially, while they have to hear the others chat about how fun the big sleepover was while they fire away nearby, ignorantly and incessantly on Snap chat and Instagram.

    Moravian Academy was a great prep school that really shaped their students into studious students. It’s a place where critical thinking is essential for classroom discussion. However, diversity there is almost nonexistent. The majority of the student body is white as well as the staff.
    Who knew this gem existed? My husband attended private school but his experience was nothing like this. Moravian is amazing! They offer 3 languages plus Latin, a robust music program, robotics and programming electives. There are multiple after school sports for every season that run daily which is a huge plus for working parents. They also have after care which can be used daily or on a drop in basis.

    The student population is amazing. They are kind, considerate, respectful and bright. The teachers are remarkable. My son never feels spoken down to. Expectations are clear and the students thrive to meet or exceed them.

    Classrooms are well-equipped with all the current technology and it is used correctly by teachers. Students are issued iPads for the year and much of the work is done on that.

    Our son was very reluctant to change schools, but he was thrilled from the first day. If we knew this existed we would have made the decision sooner. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!
