Since 1932, York House School has been committed to providing a well-rounded, values-based education that inspires young women to live meaningful and purposeful lives. Our motto, “Not for Ourselves Alone,” continues to guide us as we equip students to be bold and ethical citizens of the world.
Over many years, students, educators, and alumnae have partnered with organizations such as Kidsafe, Each-One-Teach-One, Project Somos, and the YWCA. Whether at home or abroad, these and other experiences have taught our students that they are part of a larger community.
Through experiences like this, students explore values, identify, frame, and understand complex issues and questions of ethics. Participation in Global Programs such as community engagement opportunities in Vancouver or Guatemala, an international exchange experience, the Duke of Edinburgh Program, or Outdoor Education cultivates students' growth as creative and critical thinkers and leaders in their communities.
York House School is committed to developing long-term and mutually beneficial learning relationships with community partners that honour the human dignity and agency of all involved. We are committed to deepening students’ learning through these experiences, integrating where possible, the learning that takes place in and beyond the classroom.
