Some of our seniorsIt's been a long time coming, and it's finally here! York Academy will graduate its first class of 12 exceptional seniors in May 2022! Thanks to caring teachers and the rigor of the International Baccalaureate curriculum, these students will be well-prepared for college and ready to take on the world! 

We can't wait to see the amazing things in store for them! One of our seniors is currently a Semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program, which means her scores were among the top 1 - 2% of seniors across the nation! She's applying at various Ivy League schools and plans to major in engineering or physics. Other seniors are considering universities in Africa and Europe. Another student plans to play on the golf team, major in sociology and attend law school. Others plan to study medicine, music technology and English literature. Their futures are so bright!

You can help York Academy to continue to develop, prepare and empower future leaders like them and those to come by giving to the York Academy Foundation. 

There are a variety of ways to support our students including personal gifts, corporate donations, matching funds and stock transfers. Currently, we are focused on growing the York Academy Foundation Endowment at York County Community Foundation to support students forever. 

The York Academy Foundation participates in Give Local York each May. In addition, the York Academy Foundation is an approved Educational Improvement Organization (EIO) and can receive contributions via Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program. Thanks to the support of our local business community, York Academy has been able to implement innovative programs for our students through EITC contributions.

How can you help? We invite you to allocate a gift of any size that is meaningful to you for:

1) York Academy’s greatest needs. Your donation will impact students this school year.

2) The York Academy Foundation Endowment of York County Community Foundation. Your gift will make a lasting impact for years to come and be an investment in future graduating classes.

You can impact students and help change the trajectory of their lives - especially those who will be the first in their family to go to college.
