York Prep Preparatory School

York Prep, a New York City private college prep school in the Lincoln Center area, offers a structured co-educational learning environment for students in grades 6–12. Believing that every student has the ability to succeed, we’ve created a nurturing atmosphere that rewards excellence and encourages individual effort. At the very core of the York Prep philosophy are the students themselves. Whether they are learning to recognize and appreciate diversity through required community service projects, scaling to new academic heights in their ability-based courses, or engaging in the rich cultural milieu of New York City, our students are challenged and supported every step of the way at this NY private school.

Unlike the academic environment at other independent schools in New York City, York Prep does not force an archaic, irrelevant, or inflexible curriculum upon its students. Rather, the school allows students to find their own learning paths, whether that’s through courses that place students with similar academic abilities together, the more rigorous Scholars Program, the Jump Start program which helps students overcome academic difficulties, independent-study courses, or even college classes at Columbia, New York University, or Hunter College. At an average of 15 students, classes are small and intimate, allowing students to nurture their ideas in a safe setting. Outside of the classroom, students have the opportunity to participate in sports or arts activities or a number of clubs and organizations for further academic and personal development.

York Prep is a recognized New York preparatory school approved by the New York State Board of Regents. We are also accredited by the Middle State Association of Colleges and Schools.
