FBLA State Competition

FBLA State CompetitionFive Upper School students recently took part in the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) State Competition.

FBLA aligns perfectly with the IB framework and the York Academy's mission. Their goal is to inspire and prepare students to be community-based business leaders in a global society through relevant career preparation and leadership experiences.

Wesley Keller competed in the Economics category, Assata Jones competed in the Hospitality and Event Management category, and Gabby Houck competed in Business Management category. She finished in the top 15 in Pennsylvania in her category!

It was such an incredible experience for all the students, and they had a terrific time. Many thanks to FBLA Advisor, Hannah Alvarnaz for her leadership and enthusiasm. The students are ready to start prepping for next year!


Students Excel at York County Science & Engineering Fair

StudentsThis year, 21 Upper School students participated in the York County Science & Engineering Fair. We’re thrilled for Neva Kirk-Jadric on being the Senior Division Grand Champion (overall winner). Based on a list of previous winners, Neva is the very first York City student to receive this impressive award, and we are very proud of her. Recently, she traveled to Los Angeles to compete against students from around the globe! In addition, Lily Houck submitted two separate projects – another impressive first. Multiple other students placed, and it was our most successful year ever!

Congrats to all of the students and to science teacher, Mrs. Reed. She cares deeply for her students, and with her encouragement and support, they thrive. Without her lead, these accomplishments would not have been possible.
