York provides a safe community where students explore new interests, focus on academics, and participate in a valuable array of extracurricular activities with like-minded individuals. As you will discover, York is an extraordinary place.

At York, we are committed to developing inquisitive thinkers and citizens. York successfully combines the pursuit of academic excellence with a nurturing community. We offer a high-level academic experience, promote perspectives, teach life skills, and nurture a genuine community of care. Our ideals provide us with our purpose—to inspire and prepare a diverse community of creative, independent thinkers.

To sample our distinctive culture, I invite you to view York’s Break, a student-led, all-school assembly. Break is the energizing pulse of our school, a school devoted to the well-being and accomplishments of our students. York’s Break is available for viewing on our YouTube Channel.


Above all, I am confident you will find York welcoming. At York, adults listen to students’ ideas, opinions, and stories, creating young adults who are self-assured and motivated. York has a notable history of preparing outstanding scholars and exemplary human beings.
