Admissions

In 2011, the York Academy Regional Charter School was established as a nonprofit public school by three chartering districts—Central York, York Suburban and The School District of the City of York. There is no tuition cost to attend the Academy.  We currently serve students in kindergarten through ninth grade. The York Academy will be adding tenth grade in the 2019-20 school yearand a grade level each year until we are a full K-12 institution at the start of the 2021-22 school year. 

In accordance with our school charter, each grade is filled with a specific number of students and 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, students from 11 districts attend the York Academy. 

The York Academy is currently accepting applications for the 2019-20 school year. Please complete the application below and drop it off at our Lower School or mail it to Tina Ziegler’s attention at York Academy Regional Charter School, 32 W. North Street, York, PA 17401. You may also email it to her at tziegler@yorkarcs.org.

Please note that even if your child is currently on the waiting list, you will need to submit a new application for the 2019-20 school year. 

If your child is offered admission, we will need the following documents to complete the registration process and enroll your student in the York Academy:

•  Personal identification of the parent/guardian
•  Proof of child's identity (birth certificate)
•  Immunization record and current medical records
•  Proof of residence
•  A copy of transcripts for any previously attended school



 The York Academy is still accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year. Although most grades have a waiting list, parents are urged to submit an application, as sometimes students leave the school because their families must relocate. If this happens, openings may become available, and your child could still be offered admission during this school year. Please complete the application below and drop it off at our Lower School or mail it to Tina Ziegler's attention at York Academy Regional Charter School, 32 W. North Street, York, PA 17401. You may also email it to her at tziegler@yorkarcs.org.
