Student life at York Prep is enriched with a diverse selection of clubs that delve into the arts, politics, literature, international cultures, sports, agriculture, and beyond.
School clubs meet during the day and in the afternoons after regular classes. Some of the offerings include Chess Club, Sports Broadcasting, Hiking Club, 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 The Paw
, and the school literary magazine. Genesis
, our literary and art magazine, has won nationally acclaimed awards. Another “hands-on” club is Student Government, which operates the student-staffed school store and organizes frequent fundraisers, assemblies, bake sales, and the annual Halloween festivities.
Two major theater productions are staged each year, employing the talents of York Prep students in costume design, set design and construction, lighting, and acting. Learn more about York Prep’s Visual Arts department
. 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 abundance of local museums throughout Manhattan, 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. Learn more about the exciting trips students have taken with York Prep.
