YOU DID IT!
You answered the call. A record number of donors raised a record total for 162 local nonprofits in the 2020 Monterey County Gives! campaign.
Thank you for stepping up.
-The Monterey County Gives! team.
We inspire and prepare a diverse community of creative, independent thinkers. Since 1959, York School has created an exceptional college-prep experience for our youth: inspiring them to develop intellectual curiosity; challenging them to create and try new things; and preparing them to be passionate contributors in college and in life.
York School is committed to providing the best college preparatory education to local students from a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds; 50 percent of York School students attend on scholarships. Since the onset of Covid-19, the schools have seen a dramatic increase in financial need from families whose financial circumstances have changed due to parents’ loss of work. Without additional tuition assistance, many new and returning families cannot afford to enroll their children. They are working with these families to provide extensions, discounts and additional aid.
At first I did not want to attend York, but my mother and mentors pushed me to apply. I fought them the entire way. Today I am so thankful for York and the education and community it has provided me. I am the senior class president, an honor roll student, and an active participant in athletics and choir. Without York, I don’t know where I would be.
