Keeping our students, faculty and staff safe is our top priority! To help ensure safety, background screens for volunteers are necessary. Please complete the following Secure Volunteer Application. You will be notified by email when you have been approved. You will also receive a Secure Volunteer ID card to verify your background screen has been completed. Only parents that volunteer at the school need to complete this process.
Business partnership helps support the programs, events, and education at our school and helps our students achieve success. If you are interesting in finding out more information about your business partnering with York Prep for the 2019/20 school year, please contact Brooke Bruner.
Business Partnership Opportunities
1) Patriot 5K Run: York Preparatory Academy will be hosting our inaugural Patriot 5K run on January 18 as part of our Homecoming weekend events. The goal of our Patriot 5K run is to create a York Prep Alumni Scholarship to assist a 2020 graduate in their college pursuits. We are looking for a few local business sponsors that would be interested in partnering with us to help cover the cost of the race so that more proceeds can be designated to the scholarship.
