Junior High One-Act Play

Posted on: November 21st, 2017

Auditions for the Junior High One-Act Play will be held February 14 and 15 from 3-4 PM in room 210.  Interested students in grades 7 and 8 should sign-up on the sheet outside of room 210.  Students will be assigned a piece of work to read and perform. Students will be given time to practice the piece and then time to perform it.


This year’s Junior High One Act Play is entitled, The Twilight Cone. It is Marcus’s first day working at the Twilight Cone, an ice cream shop owned by his great aunt. When his aunt must run an errand, Marcus forgets his promise to serve only vanilla while he is alone in the store. Strange things begin to occur (time is rewound or slowed down, just to name two) when unusual flavors of ice cream are ordered and eaten. What will happen to Marcus and those who order ice cream from the Twilight Cone?  The play is being performed Friday, March 23, from 7-7:30 PM in the auditorium.  Admission is free.

A spaghetti dinner will be prepared and served by Junior High Student Council members to families of 6th grade students at 6 PM prior to the start of the performance. All 6th graders will eat for free. A fee of $6 per person over the age of 5 will be charged to help cover the cost of food. Please RSVP to Rachel Shanko at with the 6th grader’s name, the family’s name, and the total number of people attending by March 15.  Click here for a flyer.

The York Catholic Fund

Posted on: July 7th, 2017

“We Believe”

The York Catholic Fund provides vital dollars to help ensure an exceptional educational experience for our students. Each year, donations support the gap between tuition charged and the actual cost per student (approximately $2,000.00 per student), professional development for teachers, student club activities, technology, and facility improvements at the school.

We Believe York Catholic students work hard, play hard, and brighten the world with their faith, mind, and heart. They share their musical and acting talents throughout the year and have great success on the fields and on the courts winning several athletic championships.

We Believe our parents make the best choice for their children as they continue to invest significantly in their education. The Class of 2017 is a strong example of the return on this investment achieving $8.3 million in college scholarship offers and volunteering over 20,000 hours of service to the greater York community and beyond. Upon graduation, our students truly realize the mission statement of York Catholic as they are academically sound, intellectually curious, and ethically prepared to serve the global community with grace.

We Believe as a member of our YC family, your help will enable us to continue to offer a rich multidimensional experience for this year’s students. Please become a donor to this year’s York Catholic Fund. Your support will help our students benefit from strong academics, winning athletics, and vast and varied extracurricular activities.

We gratefully accept annual gifts from July 1 through June 30 of each year to The York Catholic Fund. Donors who give $1,000 (or more annually) are members of YC’s Mystical Rose Society and as such, receive special acknowledgement at Mass and invitation to events throughout the year. For fiscal year 2018 (July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018), The York Catholic Fund will strive to raise $300,000 to address the initiatives above by encouraging all graduates whether recent or seasoned, parents, and friends to get involved. Each and every gift, whatever the amount, is valued and matters tremendously.
