York School


We inspire and prepare a diverse community of creative, independent thinkers.

The Big Idea

Since its founding in 1959, York has promised to be a "school for all." York's founder wanted the school to be one with excellent academics for everyone, regardless of their families' ability to pay full tuition. The school has been and will continue to be an inclusive school, rather than exclusive.

At York, we believe students learn best when they are members of a diverse, engaged, and respectful community. York considers the diversity of its student body to be one of its greatest strengths and this can be seen in the variety of cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds of its students. We believe that having a student body and faculty diverse in talents, viewpoints, and backgrounds creates the highest-quality learning experiences while fostering local and global connections.

True to its original intention, York School has consistently provided some level of tuition assistance to approximately 60% of its student population.

"The day I found out that I could attend York with the help of the financial aid program was so exciting for me. I was practically speechless. When school started, it was everything I dreamed it would be, and is currently giving me my ideal high school experience." Anonymous --Class of '23, Salinas, CA
