International Baccalaureate

Welcome to the York Academy Regional Charter School, an International Baccalaureate World SchoolThe York Academy has an unrelenting focus on academic excellence, challenging students in diverse learning environments and opening doors for growth, opportunity, and global citizenship. 

Students Travel to Chile & Argentina

.Students who participated in Knights International this summer returned from their international tour of Chile and Argentina with Education First (EF). They explored culture, food, lifestyles and more while visiting Santiago, Vina del Mar, Valparaiso, and San Pedro de Atacama in Chile, and Buenos Aires in Argentina.

Here are some of their most memorable activities: 
• A graffiti painting experience/workshop in Valparaiso
• Touring Moon Valley in the Atacama Desert
• Taking a cooking class to learn how to make ceviche at the local fish market in Santiago
• Getting a tango dance lesson in Buenos Aires

The students got to connect their learning to real life while being open-minded, risk-taking International Baccalaureate (IB) global citizens. Many thanks goes to Mr. Bartrom for coordinating the entire trip and spearheading this incredible (annual) opportunity for our students. We're very proud of the way they represented the York Academy internationally! 


Exciting Update

We are proud to share this wonderful news with you. In March of 2023, York Academy was designated as "TSI" (Targeted Support and Improvement) by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. This designation was given to us for not showing student growth on PA System of School Assessment (PSSA) that was at or above state-established standards. 

As of June 2024, York Academy received communication that we are no longer in TSI designation because the student PSSA scores for the 2023-24 school year surpassed the PA State interim goal target! York Academy will continue to provide excellence in support of all student academic growth by offering differentiated instruction, robust interventions and by regularly reviewing and taking action that is based on data.
