PTSA Academic Committee



The York PTSA Academic Committee was formed to fulfill one of many elements of the PTSA mission -- to advocate for and support activities that encourage a robust academic environment at York. The committee does this by spotlighting those York clubs and PTSA events/activities which are academically-oriented.

In addition, by developing parent guidebooks, online tools, and organizing monthly PTSA-AC presentations by York faculty and administration, PTSA-AC offers all parents a terrific way to learn about the amazing environment at York, and how to navigate and balance the many academically rich opportunities for their child.
