The York School offers a world-class IB education and like all top-tier independent schools we rely on donations to be truly competitive and enable our students and faculty to meet their full potential. While tuition and fees cover our basic operating costs, donations are critical to the program enhancements that make The York School really shine.
Each priority area is directly linked to our strategic plan in order to support the mission, vision and values of The York School community.
The York School Fund is our annual giving program that helps York students shine brighter.
Our goal is 100% participation. With your help, The York School Fund will support the following projects, and more, this year:
Junior School Playground - Reimagine play
The existing playground, built over seven years ago, has enjoyed over 840,000 hours of four-season rugged play. Now is the time to give our Junior School students a space that allows for increased fun and outdoor learning time—designed with differentiated, age-appropriate, risk-taking and creative play opportunities.
Head’s Initiative Program - Join our supporting cast.
Through the York School Fund, the Head’s Initiative program accepts proposals from teachers and students to champion new projects that will enhance our school.
The joint Middle and Senior School Wizard of Oz production is one of those special projects that will give our students a chance to be a part of something big. Whether they are centre stage; in the ensemble; doing hair and makeup; making costumes; playing in the band or delivering lighting and effects—this is truly a community effort and a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our students.
