Welcome from the Admissions Office

Welcome to York Prep Admissions! We are glad that your quest for the right school for you has brought you to our site. York Prep has much to offer students, no matter where their interests lie.

Our middle school and high school academic programs are demanding but not intimidating. Children receive the support they need to excel in an atmosphere that is warm and caring. Our tracking system enables students to give their best in order to achieve academic success, regardless of their strengths and weaknesses.

The school has a long history of thinking creatively to meet individual situations. For instance, Jump Start arose out of a need to strengthen academic preparedness for students needing extra help with study skills or with a learning disability. The Scholars Program was developed to challenge high-achieving students.

York Prep offers a wide variety of sports, including soccer, baseball, basketball, volleyball, softball, track and field, cross country, tennis, golf, and swimming. With more than 50 clubs and special activities—from animation and ballroom dancing to Model United Nations and rock band—halls and classrooms usually remain buzzing long after the final bell.

Our admission process gives as much weight to a child's character as to academic achievement, seeking not only students who have already excelled but those who are eager for the opportunity to excel. A scholarship fund and outreach to a range of elementary and middle schools help assure economic and racial diversity. York Prep's culture of acceptance makes it a place where it is recognized that everyone has something to contribute.

We look forward to your visit and to sharing our school with you.
