Welcome to our website. It is my pleasure to serve as principal of York Preparatory Academy High School. My staff and I have set high expectations and the support system to assure student success. We are very excited about our school! York Preparatory Academy High School is a college and career preparatory public charter school. Students are challenged academically with “Patriot DNA” traits woven within the daily to daily experience.

Our teachers provide a rigorous education with emphasis on literacy, inquiry/project base learning that is enhance by incorporating technology that will prepare students for college and career readiness. All graduates will display our “Patriot DNA” traits. The Patriot DNA traits are soft skills that are instilled in every student. Our students are good communicators, can think critically, creative, work collaboratively with others, make good choices, and have high character. In addition, our students have the opportunity to earn college credit through Advance Placement and dual enrollment courses at both York Technical College and Winthrop University.

We are excited about our YPA School of Business which exposes the students to real world opportunities of the business field. Our Patriot Scholars Academy, provides select students an honors college experiences at the high school level. Students can participate in many extra-curricular activities. In these activities, students are involved in community service projects, apprenticeships, internships, volunteer work, live performances, travel experiences, and competitions.

We value our students and are committed to providing Individual Graduation Plans to discuss their future plans and their progress towards college and career readiness. Ultimately, our students become well-rounded graduates.
