Are you looking for a diverse school that will prepare your child to excel in college and beyond?  The York Academy's International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum and innovative art, music and design/engineering programming may be the right fit! York Academy is a unique, tuition-free alternative where students thrive and take responsibility for their learning in a caring environment. 

In 2011, York Academy was established as a nonprofit public school by three chartering districts - Central York, York City and York Suburban. Students from all school districts are welcome to apply. We will add 11th grade in the 2020-2021 school year and will be fully K-12 at the start of the 2021-2022 school year. 

In accordance with our school charter, each grade is filled with a specific number of students and selected by lottery. Applicants who are 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 Pennsylvania. Students from 14 districts currently attend the Academy. Click here to apply now.
