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.
Since 1742 the school has encouraged sound innovations to meet contemporary challenges while recognizing the permanence of basic human values.
At Moravian Academy, "Mind, Body, Spirit" permeates both our historic Church Street Campus and the Merle-Smith Campus where our upper school is located.
We provide a strong academic foundation in preparation for college work.
We help students develop self-respect, dignity, and a concern and respect for others.

We also students to develop their physical skills and encourage positive attitudes about health and fitness.

School Reviews

  • Recommended March 29, 2014 - 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. - Posted by Parent
