A College-Prep, Independent Day
School for Grades 8-12



During Chuck Harmon’s 17-year tenure as Head of York School, he has strengthened existing programs and implemented innovative changes that have left York in a strong academic and financial position. His fingerprints and influence can be seen in faculty professional growth, financial aid, the Gawain Family Theater, the outdoor lab, Service Learning, CIEE summer study abroad, and fiscally sound business practices.

More importantly, Chuck has led a coordinated and intentional effort to bring York’s vision and mission to life. This includes York’s welcoming community, our values of honesty, respect, responsibility and compassion, and our goals for student well-being. He has cared for members of the York family and been a role model and mentor to many. He and his wife, Elizabeth Miles, have put York first always, creating an environment where students thrive.  We are deeply grateful.

Chuck and Elizabeth have asked that the School not spend money on a retirement party or gift for them, but rather, have asked that anyone wishing to honor them contribute to a fund to support students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend York.

In honor of their 17 years of service, York School is establishing the Chuck Harmon and Elizabeth Miles Financial Aid Endowment. To donate, please contact Kris Edmunds at kris@york.org or 831-373-4438, ext. 128. Online donations can be made on our Give Online Page. Please select the Harmon/Miles Endowment tab.
