Senior School Clubs & Co-Curriculars

Our rich co-curricular activities help balance the rigorous academic program by providing students with connections to the community, broadened social networks and exposure to varied experiences. Students are able to find their passions, learn to communicate effectively with their peers and embrace opportunities to be their best selves. This self-discovery is especially pertinent during the Senior School years as students begin to plan ahead to university applications. They understand that following their passions and developing a unique skill set will make them stronger candidates and set them apart from the crowd.

The Senior School co-curricular program develops our students’ individuality and strengthens their connection to the vibrant York School community. Some of the clubs and co-curriculars offered to Senior School students include:

  • Architecture
  • Peer mentorship
  • Student affinity groups
  • Creative writing
  • Spanish
  • Reach for the Top
  • Investment club
  • Guitar ensemble
  • Jazz ensemble
  • Model UN
  • Peer tutoring
  • Community service committee
  • Student newspaper ‘The Stand’
  • ....and more!

Senior School students have an opportunity to propose and lead clubs, which helps strengthen their leadership skills and allows them to further develop their interests and passions.
