The York School Parents' Association (YPA)

The York School Parents' Association's goals are to promote a strong, cooperative and welcoming community and to oversee events that increase spirit and camaraderie. This dual commitment and the superbly executed events that flow from it have always been critical in helping parents and students connect to each other and to the School. 
Every parent and guardian is a member of the YPA. The YPA is led by the Executive team. 
The York School Parents Association (YPA) has thirteen elected and many non-elected volunteer positions. To learn more, please visit the executive brief. We invite all members to engage with our community.
