Thank You for Your Support
York Catholic has continued to offer our students a competitive, top notch education for the past 90 years. This education extends outside of academics; YC students are encouraged to form habits of service to live out their faith in their everyday lives. While students are only required to complete minimal service hours (12-16 hours depending on their grade), many students volunteer beyond this. The Class of 2018 completed over 17,768 hours of community service!

With just five days of 2018 left, we turn to our generous alumni, parents, and community friends like yourselves and ask you to prayerfully consider YC as a charity of choice for your year-end gifts to our annual fund and our capital campaign.

Capital Campaign
This fall we officially kicked off our Capital Campaign, Grow Today, Impact Tomorrow. This campaign is raising funds that will directly address much needed facility upgrades that will provide for an enhanced educational instructional environment for our students. Click here to learn more.
