Advance Into Moravian (AIM)

About AIM

AIM offers an opportunity for selected students to make friends, discover what Moravian College has to offer, and make a positive difference in the community before the first day of classes by participating in a challenging three week academic summer bridge program.

AIM Mission Statement

The AIM program engages a select group of incoming first year students in a variety of academic, co-curricular, social, and civic engagement experiences that foster a positive growth mindset, promote academic excellence, prompt critical thinking, and facilitate leadership development as these students transition from high school into college.
