Our Graduates

With a 100% university placement rate, The York School supports our graduates in developing the capacity to promote cohesion, collaboration and change. They attend the best universities in the world and then become leaders in their professions and citizens who make a difference.
Their habit of inquiry, depth of knowledge and care for issues beyond themselves combine to create a talented, approachable and diverse group who know how to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives.
The York School graduates engage in the world because they understand their own passions, are experts in teamwork, feel an obligation to contribute and have the confidence to navigate an uncertain and changing world.
They are also the face of the future: children of the digital age and citizens of a global community who are ready to excel in a world that is increasingly interconnected and interdependent.

Our past students affirm that “university placement is a fit to be made, not a prize to be won” and demonstrate that they are future ready.
