      Celebrating the Class of 2022

      Class of 2022

      The inaugural class of seniors graduated on May 29. It was a monumental day in York Academy and York County history! They have experienced great success. In fact, nearly all of them qualified as National Merit Scholars, and Ane Kirk-Jadric was a Finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Competition!

      We're also thrilled to share that six students earned the International Baccalaureate Diploma! The Diploma Programme (DP) exams are intense, cover a breadth of knowledge, and last hours over days. In addition, two other graduates passed content specific exams, which will set them up to earn college credits. This is an incredible honor for these students, and we are so proud of them.  

      IB DiplomaTheir success is a true testament to the strength and depth of our students and teachers, along with the support of their parents. It's also a vision that our Board of Trustees has held since the York Academy opened its doors. We are thankful for the Board's leadership and foresight.

      Kirk-Jadric Honored as Finalist in National Merit Scholarship Competition

      Ane Kirk-JadricThere's been an impressive "first" at York Academy and we couldn't be more proud. Recent graduate Ane Kirk-Jadric is one of 15,000 students across the county to qualify as a Finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Competition! As a result of her high academic success, she received a full scholarship to attend Vanderbilt University to major in engineering. 

      Ane credits York Academy’s focus on helping students succeed. “You have to put in the work, but York Academy wants you to get to that finish line," she said. Ane was instrumental in designing and formatting the first Upper School yearbook. She is also a skilled equestrian and artist.

      Ane served in leadership roles in the National Honor Society, National Spanish Honor Society and National Art Honor Society. She also received the following accolades: Presidential Award for Academic Excellence, Secular Student Alliance Award, Lisa M. Waller Striving for Excellence Award, Pinto Family Scholarship Award, York Academy Foundation Grant and the Diploma Programme (DP) Spanish Award. 

      Best of luck in your future endeavors, Ane. We know that you will be successful in all that you do!
