Admissions Update

York Prep is now fully back-to-school (click here for the latest on our reopening plan).  We are prepared for new ways to meet and engage with prospective families this fall.  The Admissions season for the 2021-22 school year is officially in motion, with our application now available online.  After submitting an application you will be prompted to select a Zoom interview time slot and upload all supporting documents. If conditions allow, we will invite your child to visit York for an informal assessment.
We are looking forward to getting to know you and your child – and helping you to get to know us – through a safe, welcoming, and transparent admissions process focused around our applying families' needs and questions. 

During this unique admissions season we are changing as little as possible. However, York Prep has decided to make a few adjustments for 2020: 
  • formal standardized testing, ISEE or SSAT, is not required, but can be submitted
  • all interviews will be held virtually 
  • no creative writing piece required
  • digital materials will be sent to families for an informal academic assessment conducted during virtual interviews
All Jumpstart applications must be supported by an up to date Neuropsychological and/or psychoeducational evaluation.
In addition to an evaluation, an IEP can be submitted as another supporting document.
Over the coming weeks and months, we encourage you to reach out to the admissions team at any time, join us for a virtual open house, view the virtual school tour (coming soon), and look over the digital admissions materials.  We look forward to getting the chance to “meet” and talk soon.

  • Headmaster's Thoughts: November 2020

    Our opening on September 10th was the result of many months of preparation. We are all still working hard to do everything we can to continue to keep the school open for our students in our regular five day week format. So I am going to cheat on my “Thoughts” for November. I have written them for close to 16 years. My first was in December 2004, and after more than 170 essays, many of which are very forgettable, I want to give an insight as to how I do them, and then copy a long piece from my favorite book of English humor. That is the cheating part.
