Curriculum Overview

Moravian Academy Lower School offers an enriched and nurturing environment where children develop academically, socially, and spiritually. The curriculum is built to inspire curiosity, critical thinking, creativity, and reasoning through cooperative learning, small-group instruction, and discussion. Class projects, presentations, and performances allow children to share their learning with others both in person and in digital form. Intellectual risk-taking in all subject areas develops competence and confidence to become life-long learners.
