bilingualAs part of the IB Diploma Program, students are required to be fluent in two languages by graduation. This includes their native language and another language. Currently, the York Academy provides Spanish and English instruction.

Beginning in kindergarten, students participate in Spanish class two times during each six-day academic cycle. It becomes a major subject starting in sixth grade (and beyond). The Spanish class is designed to provide an energetic, supportive learning environment that teaches vocabulary and conversation skills and encourages cultural exploration.
