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.
The school’s downtown York location provides additional learning opportunities for all students–from field trips to the Strand Capital Performing Arts Center and numerous local museums 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.
