York Academic Boosters are committed to raising school and community awareness of academic achievement at York High School. We do this by partnering with York and the community to recognize both high achievers and those who strive to improve; working to increase participation in and recognition of academically related clubs and activities; and advocating for strong and diverse course offerings that challenge every student.

Academic Boosters meet at York High School in the Yorker Room (across the hall from the main office), usually on the first Thursday of every month at 8:30 am. Click here for a printable membership form.  All members receive informative monthly minutes.

Academic Boosters membership offers a terrific way to
learn about the amazing academic environment at York!

Academic Boosters is a committee of the York PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association)
