Welcome to the Upper School

When I enter Walter Hall each morning the air is already abuzz with excitement. Seniors chat in the Melhado Dining Room over cups of hot beverages while the lounges are alive with students talking about the next recital or athletic event; teachers eagerly assist students who have arrived early to ask questions about last night’s homework assignment or to get a jump start on that day’s lesson. This atmosphere of friendly and frenetic energy is palpable each and every day and reflects the vibrancy that is uniquely Moravian Academy.

Our young men and women are happy, well-rounded, and intellectually curious students who genuinely care for each other and their connection to the entire school community. The value of Moravian Academy's college preparatory program becomes clear as our students grow to accept responsibility, make informed choices, and thoughtfully shape their own futures. We encourage them to extend their reach and take academic risks in order to maximize their potential. Faculty, advisors, and coaches all forge nurturing relationships with our student body that, in turn, develops into outstanding creative and critical thinkers fully prepared to thrive in pursuit of any future endeavors.

I encourage all interested families to explore our website, visit our beautiful 120-acre Merle-Smith Campus, and contact me with any questions you may have. Once you visit and experience our dynamic, intellectually-stimulating atmosphere you will understand why parents have been entrusting us with shaping their most precious assets—their children—for more than 270 years. Join us and become a part of the Moravian Academy community!
