Tuition Assistance

A Moravian Academy education requires an investment in your child’s future. 

Tuition assistance is available to families with students in Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade who demonstrate financial need, as determined by the information provided annually to Clarity. Clarity is an independent entity that partners with independent schools to offer a secure, streamlined financial aid application that can be completed online in 20-30 minutes. The process considers family assets, income, expenses, and debts. Returning families or siblings of current students are first prioritized for aid before the financial aid pool is opened to incoming students. A student’s inability to pay will not determine their admissibility to the institution, and a student’s admissibility will not determine their aid award.  Please note that preschool and pre-kindergarten students will not be considered for financial aid.
For questions, please contact financialaid@mamail.net.
