Parents' Association

The Parents' Association serves as the link between school leadership and the Moravian Academy parent community. Association members also perform important volunteer services, which the school heavily relies on.  We encourage you to get involved! 

There are a wide variety of activities you can be a part of such as staffing a booth at Country Fair, selling holiday wreaths and ornaments, or volunteering on one of our many committees. Ready to get involved? Simply click HERE to sign up today.
