As a senior at Moravian Academy, who has attended the school since 4th grad, I can now look back and appreciate what this school has given me. This learning environment is supported by superb teachers who are here because they love to teach and they love the school. At Moravian, compared to other schools I have heard first hand accounts of, it is cool to be smart and to succeed and the school offers and encourages appropriate amounts of freedom and individuality among students (individuality in relation to both fellow students and their parents). Though I do not know anyone who is in favor of the new building plans for the school, I hope that Moravian continues to fund what this school is attended for, and that is a strong and well-rounded education that prepares students well for higher education.

As one who experiences the every day life of being a Moravian Academy student, I have to say that I am displeased with the school. The discipline is terrible; nobody is punished, or reprimanded for doing anything against the rules. A child was caught looking at inappropriate things on the school computers, and was only told not to do it again. The same child as well as many others continuously bully and banter the students all day long, and even though the staff is aware of it, they do nothing to stop it. The bullying and lack of discipline is out of control. This school's students have driven both myself and my sibling to leave because of the close-mindedness and lack of diversity accepted at the school. The conformity issue is disgusting.

I love Moravian. Tjere is so much room for oppurtunity in whatever you enjoy. The teachers are all so caring and compassionate about what they teach. Each element of the school is so highly developed, and faculty is always trying to improve.

Quality academics and music program. Encouraging sportsmanship and discipline. All leading to a very competitive upper school where kids are encouraged to participate in the arts and sports while being to notch students.

While I cannot say that my child's experience at Moravian has been perfect, I will say that they are proactive in dealing with issues and provide an excellent academic program for above average and well above average (gifted) students. Their enrichment opportunities are also excellent with overnight trips and hands-on experiences. The school offers a number of sports for middle school children as well. The staff is caring and tuned in to the children. There is a fair push toward conformity yet there is room for more interesting personalities if you have a tough skin. The children rise and fall based on their own merit and are pushed toward excellence. There is nothing comparable in the public system in the Lehigh Valley. If we had to do it all again, we'd still choose Moravian.

The academic programs are amazing. The extracurricular activies are also great. Parents are given the possibility to be really involved, but aren't required. The school is very flexible.

My daughter attend Moravian Academy from grade 1 through grade 8, graduating in 1995. She continued in the AP and honors program in public high school graduating with straight A's. Continued her education through an MA at a prestigious private college in Southern California. We attribute her success academically, socially, and emotionally to the exemplary education she received at Moravian. We are very pleased with her time spent there. She recently thanked us for sending her to Moravian.

Moravian Academy has excellent teachers who nurture the minds of their students, and instill a desire in them to excel. They have a very challenging academic program, but the students are given the tools to achieve in this school.

This school creates a culture of academic excellence. Students at this school expect each other to perform well, and they do. Homework load is significant and challenging but interesting at the same time. Our daughter is loving her experience here and is greatly benefitting from it. Also, the diversity of ethnicity and cultures here is remarkable!

This school is a great example of integrating the arts into the academic curriculm. Full emersion of studies: Renaissance study... design costume, wear costume to Renaissance Fair, learn music, study history, design coat of arms. The only thing I would have added more Renaissance Art History but otherwise...great integration!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
