York Preparatory Academy is a free public charter school in our fifth year of operation. Located on our 43-acre campus in Rock Hill, South Carolina, YPA provides education to students in K5-12th grade who live in South Carolina regardless of the assigned school district. 

York Preparatory Academy focuses on strong academic accountability along with character education and is the first school in South Carolina that integrates the "Character Counts!" program in all grade levels.  YPA offers many athletic programs as well as an award-winning music program. These are just some of the highlights of York Preparatory Academy and what make us the "school of choice" for many families in our area.

Please contact the Enrollment Office with questions or to schedule a tour of our campus.

York Preparatory Academy is authorized by the South Carolina Public Charter School District.

Upon request, York Preparatory Academy is required to evaluate a child for eligibility for special education services.  A request for evaluation is known as a referral.  When the school receives a referral, the school will appoint an Evaluation Planning team to determine if the child has a disability, and if the child needs special education services.  The school locates, identifies, and evaluates all children with disabilities who are enrolled by their parents in York Preparatory Academy.
