The York Academy has begun its eighth year of operation and I am pleased to have the privilege of leading this school as it continues to grow to a K-12 International Baccalaureate School. The Academy provides children with many unique advantages that will inspire children to learn and grow through an International Baccalaureate framework. Our mission will focus on academic excellence and using academic goals to focus our programming, it is expected each child will demonstrate academic growth throughout the course of each school year. The International Baccalaureate Framework provides the opportunity for an inquiry approach to education with an emphasis on collaborative learning opportunities.

As a parent/guardian, your participation in your child's education is critically important and we ask that you participate in the learning experience with your child. Be aware of the content being taught in class, reviewing assessment information, and various communications from the teaching staff and administration that we deliver to your home.

I am pleased that you have selected to exercise your right for school choice and our staff is eager to provide your child with a quality academic program that infuses an inquiry based philosophy with an international flavor into our school.
