In-Person or Live Virtual Instruction
The 2020-2021 school year will look and feel different as we continue to navigate the health situation related to COVID-19. As guidelines evolve, our school will continue to adapt to the recommendations issued by federal, state, Diocesan, and local entities for our area.
York Catholic High School will “Return to Learn” in person, on campus, 5 days per week for the 2020-2021 school year. As an alternative to in-person instruction, families have the option to participate in virtual instruction via “simultaneous teaching.” Webcams and tripods have been placed in every classroom to allow students who choose (for COVID-related reasons), to participate live in the classroom from home as if they were seated in the physical classroom themselves. We are prepared for all possible alternatives, should further remote learning be necessary as a result of a required physical campus closure.

Thank you for your patience and support as we Return to Learn at YC for the 2020-2021 school year. As always, we appreciate your partnership in the Catholic education of your children.
“I am so impressed and relieved at how the teachers are making sure the distance learners feel involved in their classes. On the first day of school, my son answered questions in class, completed a group assignment with his fellow distance learners, and completed a paired assignment with one of the in-person students. I thought that was pretty awesome. Thank you again!”
