Moravian Academy seeks to celebrate the unique potential of every individual student as they embark on their intellectual journey. The classroom environment is designed to prepare all students for success through a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) approach. UDL is a “framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn”. For those students who needed added partnerships on their journey to success, we provide small group and individual support through academic skill development and enrichment. Our Learning Specialists also confer routinely with faculty as they endeavor to provide a supportive learning environment for all learners, and also provide professional development and instructional resources as needed.
