Educating young women is in our DNA. In the United States, the education and empowerment of young women begins and continues with Linden Hall.
The Moravian tradition of educating young women was based on the principles of "The Father of Modern Education," John Amos Comenius. His revolutionary ideas included education for rich and poor, boys AND girls.
Comenius believed that education is an instrument to train individuals to seek the truth and recognize it when found. Today, we continue to apply these principles to provide an excellent educational experience for young women.
Many of our traditions are deeply rooted in our Moravian history. Our campus shares the historic Moravian Church Square (the site of the original Moravian community in Lititz, PA). We are proud to say that the sisterhood established in 1746 continues to flourish nearly three centuries later.
