Welcome to Moravian Academy! We are 650 students from zip codes throughout the Lehigh Valley, the Poconos, and New Jersey, and supported by $4 million in financial aid. We are for three-year-olds - Grade 12 community whose outstanding academic program and challenging subject matter are just the beginning. We also develop students’ curiosity and creativity, problem-solving and perseverance, critical thinking, empathy, and spirituality—laying the groundwork not merely to succeed but to thrive.
MORAVIAN STUDENTS ARE FUELED BY CURIOSITY. A three-year-old relishes her first school experience in the sensory adventure that is Primer, “middlers” devour current events in a fantasy geopolitics league, and seniors collaborate with kindergarteners, discovering—and rediscovering—the magic of storytelling. At Moravian, a spirit of inquiry is not merely encouraged. It’s taught and fueled, creating a culture of curiosity that makes learning engaging and exciting.
OUR STUDENTS REFLECT THE DIVERSITY OF SOCIETY. Through values-based programs from our multicultural curriculum to advisory to chapel—as well as active engagement with each other—children get to know, understand, and appreciate one another and the gifts each person brings. They make connections between their backgrounds while making friends.
MORAVIAN STUDENTS ARE CHALLENGED THOROUGHLY AND OFTEN, AND THEY ROUTINELY RISE TO THE CHALLENGE. Our teachers are experts in their field and experts in their understanding of the children they teach. Teachers know each student as an individual, and they set the bar high, providing just the right support to keep raising the bar.
WHEN YOU COME TO MORAVIAN, YOU JOIN HUNDREDS OF OTHERS WHO ENJOY LEARNING. And they are not afraid to—make that want to—show it, share it, and stand out. Here students gain the confidence to let their light shine and to appreciate the light shined by friends and classmates.
