The York Academy Foundation is on a mission to change students' lives! Our goal is to assist the school and its educators to develop changemakers who will improve our world. 

The York Academy is thriving and growing! Our first two graduating classes (2022 & 2023) moved on to make a greater impact, and 100% of them are continuing their education!

One graduate was a Finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Competition. She received a full scholarship and attends Vanderbilt University. Many others also qualified as National Merit Scholars. In addition, six of the graduates in the Class of 2022 earned the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, an exceptional achievement.

York Academy alumni attend Haverford College, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Temple University, and Bridgewater College, to name a few. They are succeeding because of the firm foundation and preparation they received at the York Academy, along with the academic rigor of the International Baccalaureate curriculum. Our alumni are exceptional, confident leaders.

With continued assistance from the community, we will achieve our overarching goal of developing active, responsible, compassionate individuals just like them.

Please help empower young trailblazers to come and make a gift of any amount that's meaningful to you. Your donation will help provide essential support for York Academy's most immediate needs - all to benefit students. That includes exciting, innovative learning opportunities, impactful off-campus experiences, and scholarships for seniors.
