What sets York apart?
AN EXCEPTIONAL ACADEMIC PROGRAM
Great teachers and innovative learning programs help creative and intellectually curious students develop academic knowledge and confidence. They get the kind of individual attention, support, and mentoring relationships that help them become their best selves.
A WELCOMING COMMUNITY
Our distinctive community, built on a foundation of honesty, respect, and responsibility, embraces students with diverse talents and backgrounds, helping them discover new things about themselves and the world around them.
I could have sent my kids anywhere. I chose York because I wanted them to have a great education and also be grounded in the real world – to be in a community of people from all backgrounds. – JEANETTE CISNEROS (Parent OF LISA '97, GABRIEL '00, AND JULIAN '05)
Since 1959, York has built a tradition of academic rigor combined with innovative thinking. With 225 students in grades 8-12, York is small enough to know each student well and large enough to provide a wide range of opportunities and a chance to learn from classmates who come from very different backgrounds.

- intellectual curiosity
