A CULTURE OF TEACHER SUPPORT
At York Prep we believe in the importance of teacher support, time to plan, and work-life balance so you can be successful in the classroom. Teachers at York Prep enjoy a culture that is driven to support them in their quest to find ever better ways to help their students succeed. Experienced full-time coaches in every building help answer your questions and hone your craft. Flexibility in classroom and school budgets allow you to pursue ideas and open up your creativity. Based on overall academic excellence, York Prep was awarded the National Blue Ribbon affirming exemplary teaching and learning.
COMPETITIVE BENEFITS PACKAGE
We start showing our support for our teachers and staff by offering a starting salary for educators above others in the state. Our first year teacher's salary starting in the fall of 2023 is $47,000 and we participate in the state insurance program.
In addition, we are very excited about our very own 403b retirement plan that is paid out 100% by the school. We will put an additional percentage of your salary into your 403b account every year (you can choose to contribute more voluntarily) and you participate in the management of your own retirement.
Included paid time off and free after school care for school age children in our Patriot's Promise Program make this overall benefits package hard to beat. Contact us today!
Our Wellness Program provides mental, physical, and financial wellness support to help you live a healthy and balanced life. In 2020, York Prep opened our 5,000 square-foot teacher wellness center including faculty-only fitness area with showers, professional development room, and a mental health counselor meeting area. Enjoy fun contests and earn rewards for taking time to invest in yourself in four areas: Social and Emotional health, Physical Health, Financial Strength and Planning, Excelling in Your Role!
