Parents' Association

The YHS Parents’ Association establishes connections and creates experiences to enrich family and student experiences.
At York House School, our daughters are inspired by the school’s motto "Not for Ourselves Alone", and this is something the York House School Parent’s Association takes to heart. An open association of all parents at the school, the YHS Parents’ Association strives to build community, supports our students, promotes involvement, and raises funds for York House School.
The Parents’ Association establishes connections and creates experiences to enrich family and student experiences. By liaising with YHS staff, alumnae and parents, parent volunteers work to build bridges between school and home, creating an ever-deepening spirit of community.
 
All parents are members of the association and we welcome our school’s diverse families through a variety of opportunities for involvement. Fundraising supports our daughters’ education. We are a non-profit organization governed by its own by-laws, and all funds raised go directly to the school.
 
Active participation in the association not only enriches your daughter’s school experience but also allows you to be a positive role model. Volunteer your time to YHS and enjoy one of the most important times in your daughter’s life.
