MissionWith an unrelenting focus on academic excellence, the York Academy Regional Charter School challenges students in a diverse learning environment that opens doors for growth, opportunity and global citizenship.



The York Academy Regional Charter School is proud to share that we have recently received authorization to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students in grades 6 - 9. 

In September we hosted Information Sessions that presented parents with an explanation of the Middle Years Programme and the expectations for student performance. Many thanks to those who attended these meetings.

If you are a parent of a Middle Year student (grades 6-9), it is important that you carefully review this information. It clearly outlines the expectations of students and addresses the grading process used in the Middle Years Programme. As most families are aware, the grading format used in an International Baccalaureate School is much different from a traditional public school.

We are committed to excellence, and will work to make this site a primary source for timely information and a main gateway for communication between parents, teachers, students and community members. 


York Academy is the only school in York County to educate primary and middle year students via the world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum. The IB currently engages with more than 1.4 million students in nearly 5,000 schools across 153 countries. The organization is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
