Tuesday, May 23, 2017 by The Press in School

Moravian Academy has been overflowing with good vibes and positive energy all year, but around this time everyone is just about ready to burst. Seniors have already left campus to complete their post-terms, an externship students must complete before they graduate, and are highly anticipating the June 3 graduation date.

Everyone else on campus is working hard to finish up the year, bustling with AP exams and finals. Moravian students are more than prepared to conquer these academic challenges and take on the difficult coursework bravely, with the help of amazing faculty and staff.
