Commitment to Diversity
Throughout its history, York School has embraced diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our commitment to nurturing exceptional students from all backgrounds informs our dedication to developing cultural literacy within our community through exposure to voices from multiple perspectives. It is our firm belief that growth, intellectual and personal, is best achieved through campus-wide open dialogue. The York School community affirms both our differences and commonalities, and we encourage individuality, mutual respect, and empathy.
To support our well-rounded community, a strong need-based tuition assistance program helps approximately 40% of our students, more than twice the national average for independent schools. No student or family should hesitate to apply for admission because of inability to pay the entire cost. York accepts students on the basis of personal and academic merit – applying for financial aid does not affect the admission decision.
