Why York Academy?


York Academy provides a rich, cross-curricular learning environment. The coursework moves beyond memorizing information to providing a creative, collaborative classroom environment for students to apply knowledge, test theories and draw their own conclusions. The work is rigorous and rewarding, as students develop the skills to become life-long learners.

Our location provides additional learning opportunities for all students - from field trips to the Appell Center for the Performing Arts and numerous local museums and art galleries - to swimming lessons at the YMCA and cooking classes at Central Market. These experiences strengthen the ties between our school community and the City of York, and help our students understand their role as local citizens.
