The Senior Awards Assembly will take place on Wednesday, May 23, at 8:30 AM in the auditorium.

Grades 7-8

Underclassmen Finals

Posted on: August 1st, 2017


Final examinations for students in Grades 8-11 are scheduled for Tuesday, June 5; Wednesday, June 6; and Thursday, June 7.  It is important that all students are present for these exams.  Please do not arrange vacations during these days.  Student trips or vacations will not be approved.  Students will not be permitted to take a make-up exam due to a trip.

Tuesday, June 5            Math & Social Studies

Wednesday, June 6       Religion & Science

Thursday, June 7           English & Foreign Language

For most students, two exams will be scheduled for each day, except where conflicts will necessitate three.  The testing periods will be 60 minutes.  Should a student not have an exam until the second testing period, he/she need not report until that time.  If a student does not have an exam in the second exam slot, the student is free to leave school at 9:45 AM.

Approximate time frame for most students will be 8:15 AM until 11:00 AM.  School districts have re-arranged their pick-up times to accommodate our early dismissal at 11 AM.

Lunch will not be served on Exam days.

For grades 9-11, these semester exams will comprise 1/5 of the second semester grade.  Students in grade 8 will prepare for and take a final exam; this will be presented as a learning experience in preparation for the transition into senior high school.

In light of the importance of these exams and their scheduling, the only absence that will be accepted on these days will be with a doctor’s excuse.



Sports Physicals & ImPACT Tests

Posted on: July 15th, 2017

New Online Paperwork Process
Wednesday, May 16, at 7 PM in the YC auditorium

A brief instructional meeting regarding the move to online paperwork will be held for parents and athletes Wednesday, May 16, at 7 PM in the YC auditorium.



Thursday, June 7, 2018 
6-7:30 PM
at OSS Health
1855 Powder Mill Road, York PA
Do NOT arrive prior to 5:45 PM
Cost is $15 – checks made payable to YCHS


The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association requires all student-athletes to have a physical each year.  Physicals must be dated after June 1 for the upcoming school year.  For example, if wishing to participate during the 2018-2019 school year, the physical must be dated AFTER June 1, 2018.  Physicals can be scheduled with your own physician or on the specified York Catholic date in June at OSS Health (see above).

NEW!! The Athletic Department at York Catholic High School now hosts Athletic Forms online with Arbiter Athlete, powered by PlanetHS, a software company committed to keeping student(s) safe. This digital platform will allow parents and athletes to complete and access most athletic forms (physicals, agreements, etc.) via computer, tablet, or mobile phone. It is HIPPA, COPPA, and FERPA compliant.

Instead of printing 9 pages of information to take to the doctor as was needed previously, you will instead complete the information online and only print 2 pages for the doctor to review and complete.

Athletes cannot participate in sports until digital forms are complete. Forms will be valid for the entire school year, with the exception of the physical exam provided by your physician which will reflect the policy set in place by your athletic department.

If you have any questions regarding this new process, please contact Brad Hayek, Assistant Athletic Director, at or 717-846-8871 x244. If you need technical assistance with Arbiter Athlete/PlanetHS, email

Please click here for the steps to get started with the NEW PIAA Online Physical Forms.

A brief instructional meeting regarding these changes will be held for parents and athletes Wednesday, May 16, at 7 PM in the YC auditorium. 

Note to parents of athletes entering Grade 11:  The Department of Health requires a physical for your child when entering grade 11.  The form used by the DOH is different from the form used by the PIAA.   Please be sure to take BOTH forms to your doctor.  Please note – OSS Health does not offer the school physical required by the Department of Health.  They only offer the sports physical required by the PIAA.

ImPACT Testing

There has been extensive media coverage about athletics and concussions.  York Catholic has been at the forefront in this area and includes the ImPACT Test (Immediate Post-Concussive Assessment and Cognitive Testing) to monitor our athletes.

All interscholastic athletes and cheerleaders are required to take an ImPACT Test to establish a cognitive baseline for concussions. This is an established technology used in order to determine the return to play/activity guidelines for participants who have sustained a concussion.

The test is administered on a computer.  The baseline is adequate for two years. Therefore, if a student participated on a YC team last season and had an ImPACT test, he or she is not required to repeat it this season.

Please email Mr. Brad Hayek at to see if a valid ImPACT Test is on file.  Athletes will NOT be permitted to practice until the test is completed.  It is the athlete’s responsibility to be sure the updated baseline report is on file at YC.  Students MUST check with Mr. Hayek to see if the updated ImPACT Test was transmitted properly and is on file. 

If you have any questions, please contact Athletic Director Kevin Bankos, Athletic Director Emeritus Rick Luckman, or Assistant Athletic Director Brad Hayek, or Athletic Trainer Kyle Smink.

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.
