York Country Day School
1071 Regents Glen Blvd, York, PA 17403
Founded by a group of parents seeking a demanding academic program for the children of York County, the school prospered and grew under the leadership of its first headmaster, J. Kenneth Snyder, and his wife, Elizabeth. Beginning in a converted home in York City, Mr. Snyder built a new school in 1956 on a 17-acre plot in the suburbs southwest of York. In 1975, the school became affiliated with York College of Pennsylvania; as a result, seniors and select underclassmen may enroll in up to three semester courses per year at the college. The liberal arts curriculum balances a combination of requirements and electives. Proficiency in the use of a computer is required, as are two semesters in the arts. Students in grade 9 are required to take a semester-long course in public speaking. Elective courses are available in each department. Boys and girls perform 20 hours of required community service in grades 9-11, in addition to 30 hours in grade 12. Scheduled activity periods each week allow students to pursue extracurricular interests.
