We sent our children to Moravian school until eight grade. We liked the academics and the values and both kids did, too. Both of our children then went on to larger independent high schools, but learned terrific study skills at Moravian.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
