  • Tuition & fees

    The tuition for Moravian Academy is set annually by the Board of Trustees after reviewing the financial budget and in accordance with our by-laws as a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. As our Board went through the budgeting process for the 2024-2025 school year, we gave careful consideration to how to balance the competing challenges of keeping tuition increases reasonable while having the resources to keep great teachers and maintain small class sizes. Over the past several years, inflation has skyrocketed, and expenses have risen more than expected.  In addition, the extremely competitive labor market is causing compensation growth and competition for talent that further test Moravian Academy’s budget. Just like you, our teachers have seen their cost of living increase dramatically.  And like most independent schools, we rely primarily on tuition to support our great teachers and operate excellent educational programs.  The tuition rates for the 2024-2025 school year reflect Moravian Academy’s commitment to what you care about most. 
  • Tuition Refund Plan

    Tuition insurance, offered by Dewar and set at 0.95% of tuition, is required for families choosing either the 2-payment or 10-payment plans. Families choosing to pay in full may decline the Tuition Refund Plan.  For more information, please review the Tuition Refund Plan
