International BaccalaureateWelcome to the York Academy Regional Charter School, an International Baccalaureate World School. With an unrelenting focus on academic excellence, the York Academy's mission is to challenge students in a diverse learning environment that opens doors for growth, opportunity and global citizenship.

 Congrats to the Class of 2023!

Our stellar seniors in the Class of 2023 graduated on May 25! All 19 of them will be furthering their education, just like the alumni in our first graduating class (2022). We couldn't be prouder, and we wish them success and joy on their journey!

We invite you to watch the entire ceremony below, view the
Awards Ceremony and check out our first annual Decision Day event. The York Dispatch also captured these fantastic photos.

Shop Now at the Uniform & Spirit Wear Store!

Shop NowDid you know that the YARCS Uniform & Spirit Wear Store is open all year on a rolling basis? The next deadline is June 30. Items placed by then will arrive before school starts. Shop now!


Upper School students (7-12) are required to wear a specific York Academy t-shirt and black athletic shorts for gym class. The t-shirt is available in the store for $10. You are welcome to purchase the black shorts shown with the t-shirt, but it is not required. Students may wear any school-appropriate black shorts.

Please Note: Items in the Spirit Wear section are not part of the York Academy uniform, and may not be worn to school unless it's a designated Dress Down Day.

Other than the Upper School gym t-shirt, you are not required to purchase any items from the store. Your child may wear any clothing that meets the Dress Code. Need a refresher? Read them in English or in Spanish.

We will be in touch when the orders arrive. Have a great summer!
