Success Starts Here
Passion meets purpose at York Catholic (we call it YC), a place where students learn to thrive in and out of the classroom as they build the skills to succeed in college and life.
Experience Today, Excel Tomorrow.
When you walk through the door, you can feel it, the indescribable energy that comes from a place where every student is known, cared for and inspired to thrive in and out of the classroom. York Catholic is a private middle and high school where students in grades 7 through 12 are encouraged to break the mold and are empowered with the skills to be inspired learners, leaders and innovative thinkers. Success in college and beyond starts at York Catholic and we welcome the opportunity to show you what makes the journey so special.

The YC Impact
There’s no better way to get to know YC than to meet the people who help make the experience count.
YC Middle School student Meredith Doores experienced the thrill of a lifetime in Philadelphia when she performed in the Gold Across America Gymnastics Tour starring the greatest gymnast of all time, Simone Biles. Meredith’s name was selected from a random raffle for the opportunity to perform in the finale of the show. She learned a special dance and then performed it along with approximately 100 other gymnasts. Meredith got her start in gymnastics at the age of 5 and now competes as a Level 8 gymnast for Skyline Gymnastics in York. She is looking forward to competing in the Biles International Invitational Gymnastics Meet in Houston.
As the parents of 10 children, we have had the pleasure of having 5 of them graduate from York Catholic HS so far. We have lived in many places prior to settling in York, including Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and even time in West Africa. Our favorite, by far, has been our time here in York. York Catholic has played a major role. It is a special place where students can grow and participate in a wide variety of activities and where values and morals can still be incorporated into the learning experience.
York Catholic is truly a family. Whether it was having meals made every day for 2 months after our babies were born, or friends helping get children to sporting events when we were torn in too many directions, the community lives up to the Catholic tradition of generosity and charity.
