York Prep is an independent private school in New York City committed to guiding students in grades 6 through 12 toward their maximum potential—intellectually, socially, and physically—and preparing them for college and beyond. Compassionate educators creatively address the needs and interests of a diverse community, and support and challenge students as they progress through a traditional curriculum within a structured environment. York Prep encourages the development of lifelong learners who are responsible members of their community.
We’ve built our community based on a fundamental principle. As our founder and headmaster of 50 years loves to say, “Character trumps Algebra.” While our curriculum is challenging and prepares our students to succeed academically in top schools, we prepare them to do much more than just earn good grades. We prepare them to be confident people of character.
