For curious students in grades 8-12 who want to develop their many interests and enhance their academic confidence for college. Our expert faculty provide meaningful and challenging experiences, fostering courageous leaders and creative, independent thinkers.
Commitment to Diversity & Inclusivity
  • We believe having a student body and faculty diverse in talents, viewpoints, and backgrounds creates the highest-quality learning experience while fostering local and global connections through the sharing of multiple perspectives, heritages, and voices.  An open dialogue in which students feel safe to express themselves is cultivated through our principle values: honesty, respect, responsibility, and compassion.  
    Additionally, to help foster our well-rounded community, approximately 60% of our students—more than twice the national average for independent schools—are supported by a strong need-based financial aid program.

    York School values and admits students of any national or ethnic origin, race, religion, ancestry, family makeup, sex, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, or socioeconomic status to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities available to students at the School, and the School does not discriminate on the basis of these factors in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, financial aid program, and athletic and other school-administered programs.


Get Started at York School

We meet students at the crossroads of their interests and their needs.
We encourage them to boldly explore knowledge and discover what they have yet to learn about themselves and the world. Support from a diverse group of generous donors is essential to providing high-quality educational programs, financial aid, faculty enrichment, and campus improvements and maintenance.
