Re-Enrollment Deadline
Tuition figures for next year will be published in early April after budget approval by the School Board. In order to budget appropriately, we are asking families to re-enroll now. The re-enrollment fee is $200.00, with an increase to $250.00 after April 6, 2018. As in the past, $150.00 of the re-enrollment fee will be applied to your child's 2018-2019 tuition.

Spring Celebration
You are cordially invited to the 3rd Annual Spring Celebration presented by The Stewart Companies, a festive evening of cocktails, dining, silent and live auctions, student presentations, music, and camaraderie on Saturday, April 28, from 6-10 PM at the Country Club of York. 

Please join us as we celebrate our YC pride and successes throughout the year.  All proceeds raised from this enchanting evening will benefit our York Catholic Fund, enabling us to invest in tuition assistance for those in need, a vibrant curriculum, technology upgrades, the arts and athletics, resources for our valued teachers, and the beautification and safety of our school.  

Our planning committee is actively seeking donations for our live and silent auctions.  If you can contribute a gift certificate to a local restaurant or business, or tickets to a sporting/cultural event, local attraction or getaway, it will truly help our efforts and make a difference in the lives of our students.  All donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes and grateful acknowledgement at the Spring Celebration.   Click for auction item information  or  sponsorship opportunities .    Volunteer opportunities are also currently available.
