York Academy Regional Charter School was established by three chartering districts—Central York, York Suburban and The School District of the City of York. In accordance with the school charter, each grade is filled with 75 students selected by lottery. Applicants not selected in the lottery are placed on a waiting list.
If all seats are not filled by students from the chartering districts, open seats are made available to applicants from other districts throughout the state. Currently, York Academy students represent 10 districts throughout York County.
All applications for the 2017-2018 school year to be included in the lottery were due Friday, February 24, 2017.
The lottery will take place on Monday, April 3, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. in the Media Room of the York Academy. Attendance is not necessary.
Applications are still being accepted for the 2017-2018 school year but will not be included in the lottery.
