Board of Trustees

Moravian Academy is governed by a Board of Trustees composed of parents, alumni and prominent community members. As stewards of the school's institutional goals, the board ensures that Moravian Academy's mission is appropriate and relevant to the community it serves. While the board looks at the big picture, the head of school is responsible for the school’s day-to-day operation, and the two work together to innovate, regulate and plan for the future.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice

The Board of Trustees of Moravian Academy believes that educational excellence depends upon understanding and valuing the unique way each member of the Moravian Academy community experiences our shared human journey. Consistent with the Moravian Church’s historic tradition of acceptance across many markers of human difference, the Trustees commit to a leadership role in fostering a diverse, inclusive, and equitable educational environment. While encountering difference can be challenging, a holistic and exceptional education demands nothing less. It is necessary for both personal growth and professional achievement to engage and understand different perspectives and identities.
