How to Apply to Moravian Academy

We are delighted that you are considering Moravian Academy for your child’s education. Our application process begins when you contact us through our online inquiry form or when you call our office at 610-332-5200. We will then send you an admission packet with additional information. The next step is to schedule a visit and interview. To complete the application process, each student's family submits an application, distributes teacher recommendations, personal recommendations, and signs and returns the waiver for school transcripts. All students are required to take the grade specific admission testing. 

Once all materials are on file, a candidate will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. The majority of our decisions are made by mid-March, but we continue to review candidates on a rolling basis until available openings are filled.
