Patriot Days 2023

Patriot Days is a school-wide celebration ending with our Patriot Fun Run and Color Run. York Prep’s main fundraiser of the year, family and friends support our school by collecting run pledges and then attend to cheer on their student. Our Fun Run (K-4th) and Color Run (5th-12th) will be Thursday, March 23rd.

Last year, York Prep raised over $150,000.00 in pledges! This year, funds raised will support learning opportunities and student activities, provide campus-wide safety upgrades that will impact all classrooms and buildings, and create a 2nd elementary school playground on the west side of the soccer field!
