From beekeeping on the roof to hiking in the great outdoors –York Prep’s impressive range of clubs and activities satisfies a wide range of student interests.
Two major theater productions are staged each year, involving the talents of York Prep students in costume design, set design and construction, lighting, and acting.
School clubs meet during the day and in the afternoons after regular classes. Some of the offerings include Science Club, WYRK Television, Rock Band, Photography Club, Environmental Club, and Model United Nations.
Students exercise their creative writing, graphic design, and photographic talents by being part of the yearbook staff, the school newspaper, and the school literary magazine. Genesis, our literary and art magazine, won nationally acclaimed awards in 1997, 2010, and 2011. Another “hands-on” activity is the Student Government, which operates the student-staffed school store and organizes frequent fundraisers, assemblies, bake sales and the annual Halloween festivities.
Faculty-supervised trips are offered throughout the fall and spring terms. York Prep students attend the theater, enjoy performances at the Metropolitan Opera, frequent the plethora of local museums, take ski weekends, visit Washington, D.C., and travel each year to a foreign country. Students have visited a number of lands abroad, including: Austria, China, Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and the Czech Republic.
