The scores of the national Advanced Placement (AP) exams for high school students are in and York Catholic students have again excelled.
Advanced Placement (AP) courses offer high school students college level rigor with AP students dedicating long hours of study that begin during the summer months and end in May with a national exam.   AP courses are offered through College Board, and exams are four hours in length. Exams are graded on a scale of 1-5 with one the lowest grade possible and five the highest grade possible.   Many colleges and universities accept a score of three or higher for college credit, a motivating factor for the students enrolled.
York Catholic offers Advanced Placement courses in English, Calculus, Chemistry, Biology, and US History. This spring 47 York Catholic students took the AP exams and achieved a 98% pass rate of a 3 or higher. Of the students who took the exams, 40% scored a 5, 35% scored a 4, and 23% scored a 3.  
AP Scholars with Distinction are students who earn scores of 3 or higher on five or more AP exams. The following graduate from the class of 2019 has been recognized as an AP Scholar with Distinction: Luke Motter, Pennsylvania State University. 

AP Scholars with Honors are students who earn scores of 3 or higher on four or more AP exams. The following graduates from the class of 2019 have been recognized as AP Scholars with Honors: Christian Gervasi, York College of Pennsylvania; and Sarah Reed, LaSalle University. 

AP Scholars are students who earn scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP exams. The following graduates from the class of 2019 have been recognized as AP Scholars: Gianni Hill, University of Pennsylvania; Claire Laux, The Catholic University of America; and Grace Reed, St. Joseph's University.
Congratulations to all of our AP students and to their teachers for the excellent preparation! 

New International Students and Host Families are invited to attend an orientation on Tuesday, September 3, from 12-2 PM. We will take a tour and familiarize you with programs and expectations. New students will receive their class schedules at this time.

Student Supply List

The Student Supply List for the upcoming school year is posted on the website and can also be accessed by clicking 
here.  Some teachers will announce the supplies needed for their classes on the first day the class meets.
Lunch Accounts
The Lunchtime link is now available for you to deposit lunch money into your student's account.
Our Lunchtime Point of Sale purchasing system for student lunches is connected directly to the Vision online parent portal accessible through the York Catholic website. Parents simply log in to the Vision parent portal, choose "View Cafeteria Account," click "Students," and follow the options to deposit money into their students' accounts. As parents, you will be able to view what your student is purchasing in the cafeteria. To ensure we are using this system to its potential, everyone is required to use their Lunchtime account log in to pay for his or her lunch meals. The following policies are in place regarding Lunchtime Accounts and Balances. We encourage parents to sign up for email notification when their Lunchtime account balances are getting low.
  • Checks and/or cash are not accepted in the cafeteria for food purchases during lunch periods. It is the responsibility of the student to submit a check (not cash) in a sealed envelope (clearly labeled with his/her name, grade, and student ID number) and place it in the Lunchtime box located in the cafeteria for the student's account to be credited. The minimum check amount is $10. Funds may not be available for 24 hours.
  • It is the student and parent's responsibility to monitor the Lunchtime account online for balance information and retain a positive balance at all times.
  • If a student has a lunchtime balance at $0.00 or below, they will only have the option to purchase a lunch consisting of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, fruit, and drink (1% white milk, iced tea, or orange drink) for $3.00.
  • No refunds will be given during the school year. Seniors will be issued a refund on accounts with a balance of $5 or more after graduation unless they have a sibling enrolled at YC in which case the balance will be transferred to the sibling for the next school year. All underclassmen accounts will roll-over to the next school year.
  • Report cards and Vision access will be held at the end of each quarter if Lunchtime balances are not current.
If you need assistance accessing your Vision account, please contact Deb Gingerich at or 717-846-8871 x219.

After considering all circumstances, the Principal may suspend or expel a student for these major disciplinary infractions, depending upon the severity and/or frequency of such violations.

The selling, pushing, or supplying of illegal drugs, alcoholic beverages, mood-altering substances, or drug-related paraphernalia is an extremely serious situation which is to be reported to the parents/guardians of a student and ordinarily to law enforcement officials as well. If, in the judgment of the Principal, there are no extenuating circumstances, a student committing such an offense will be expelled from the school.

Responsibility of School Personnel: All personnel at YCHS are to report immediately to the administration any student involved in the use of, transfer of, or possession of alcohol, other drugs, or vaping substances/devices while on the school property or at a school sponsored function.

The SAP team has been trained to understand and work on the problems of adolescent chemical use, abuse and dependency, depression, suicidal tendencies, and other mental health problems. The SAP team shall play a primary role in the identification and referral process of students through procedures outlined in these guidelines.
"Use" shall mean the ingestion, injection, or inhalation of any vaping substance, drug or alcoholic beverage, and shall also mean a condition or state of being of a student indicating to school authorities that such a student is "under the influence" in any setting in which students are responsible to school authority and/or supervision.
"Possession," as defined exclusively from "Use," shall mean the presence of a vaping substance/device, drug or alcoholic beverage on the person of a student, in any amount, in or on any item under the control of the student or owned by the student in any setting in which students are responsible to school authority and/or supervision.
"Distribution," as defined exclusively from both "Use" or "Possession" shall mean the sale, transfer, trade, exchange, or aid therein, in any manner of any vaping substance/device, drug or alcoholic beverage from one person to another person, whether or not a student, when such distribution takes place in a setting in which said persons are responsible to school authority and/or supervision.
"Compliant Behavior" shall be defined as the willingness of a student and/or parent or guardian to work with staff and school personnel in complying with directives of the members of the SAP team and/or this policy and/or Administrative Guidelines.
"Non-Compliant Behavior" is resistance or refusal, verbal, physical or passive, on the part of the student and/or parent or guardian to comply with the members of the SAP team, and/or this policy and/or Administrative Guidelines.
"Drug Paraphernalia" includes any items that in the school's judgment can be associated with the use of vaping substances, drugs, alcohol, or mood altering substances.
"School Sponsored Activity" is any meeting, gathering, class, or activity that is initiated, supervised, or coordinated by a school employee, whether or not said school sponsored activity occurs on school property.

This also includes the misuse of over-the-counter drugs. The YCHS Administration reserves the right to use any measures deemed necessary to control substance abuse, drug testing if necessary, even if the same is not provided for in any rule or regulation enumerated herein.

If it is determined that there has been a drug, alcohol, vaping, and/or substance violation up to and including possession of substances as described above or related paraphernalia, use and/or distribution of said items, the following will be in effect:

A child must have the required medically-appropriate vaccines or a plan to complete those vaccines or risk exclusion from school.
Children in grades 7-12 need the following immunizations for attendance:
  • 4 doses of tetanus * (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of diphtheria* (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
  • 4 doses of acellular pertussis* (1 dose on or after 4th birthday)
