1st Grade Food Drive

York Academy opened the doors to its first 225 students just eight years ago. Now, we serve a diverse student body of over 800 students from 11 school districts. By 2022, our first class of graduates will be academically strong, balanced, globally aware, culturally literate and college-ready. 

Even though York Academy is successful, we need your help to keep moving forward with our progressive model and ensure that the Academy is a lasting fixture in downtown York for years to come. You may not realize that York Academy does not receive funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Education since we are charter school. That's why community support is critical.

How can you help? A gift of any size to the York Academy Foundation will help us:

•  Inspire young artists and performers through additional programs and creative experiences;
•  Shape future innovators by expanding our Design/Makers Space Program;
•  Provide for technology needs in classrooms and for a Tech Lab in our evolving Upper School;
•  Fulfill other important needs and initiatives as they arise; or
•  Build a fund available to students upon graduation to offset college tuition costs. We must look ahead when we will have a graduating class every year.

Your donation will impact students and help us continue to offer a unique education that develops caring, successful leaders who will make this world a better place. Thank you in advance!
