Name a Scholarship
At York, we believe qualified, motivated students from diverse family situations are what make our community vibrant and interesting. Our commitment to financial assistance for those students whose families cannot afford full tuition is one of the things that sets us apart.
Scholarships funded by our generous community of donors make the York experience possible for about 45% of our students. Donors interested in supporting scholarships can make gifts to support annual scholarships or to build those endowed funds that generate scholarship support.
Contact Kris Edmunds at 831-373-4438 x128 for more information about making a life-changing gift.
CONSTANCE H. BISHOP SOCIETY
Honoring the example of the McIntosh and Bishop families and their generosity to York School, we have created the Constance H. Bishop Society. Members of the Society are those donors who make scholarship gifts that fund one or more financial aid awards in a current fiscal year. Members have the chance to meet their scholarship recipient and receive regular updates about their experience and progress at York.

"I truly hope you understand how positively you have impacted my future with your donation. You are granting me the gift of an excellent education, as well as memories that I will look back on fondly, with friends I will never forget."
"Each year Beverly and I make a scholarship-sized gift to York because we want to provide an opportunity to a student who could not otherwise attend. We admire York for its academic excellence and commitment to providing the best high school education to qualified students from all economic backgrounds. And it has been very rewarding to meet and get to know York students and follow their progress. Providing exceptional educational opportunities to local youth makes York a true community asset!"
