Lower School Traffic Changes

There are significant parking and traffic changes around the Lower School that you need to know. York Academy can no longer use the gravel lot across from the playground. Click here to find out more, get Pick-up Pass details, and learn about major shifts in traffic flow (dismissal). 

Please know that our Administration met multiple times with local entities including the York City Police Department, Traffic Bureau, City of York, neighboring businesses, and a consultant. Although the plan in place is not ideal and is challenging for everyone, we must move forward. We will continue to reflect and improve the process. Let's stay calm, be kind, and "UKnight" to keep students safe. Thank you for your patience and support!

Pennsylvania Youth Survey: Grades 6, 8, 10 & 12

York Academy has agreed to participate in the Pennsylvania Youth Survey. The purpose of the survey is to gather the information needed to plan prevention and intervention programs to improve mental health and school climate, and reduce substance misuse, school drop-out, and violence in schools and communities. The survey is being offered at no cost to all public, private, and charter schools in the state. 

On October 4, students in grades 6, 8, 10, and 12 will complete the online survey at school. It will be proctored by the classroom teachers with the support of our school counselors. The survey is completely anonymous, and no identifying information will be collected or stored on your child. The results are aggregated, and the responses are added together for a total percentage per grade level and at the state level.  Click here to read more.
