School Notes:

  • Our Philosophy

    Yorkshire Academy is a welcoming, joyful school built and supported by students, teachers, and parents working together in a spirit of mutual trust and respect. We believe that responsibility, collaboration, and intellectual curiosity develop when students are known by their teachers and classmates and feel appreciated for what they do best.

    We respect each student’s individuality. We invest time and energy in helping students understand that they are worthy, have talent, and can succeed. We build confidence, encouraging students to understand that risks are worth taking and failure is a learning opportunity. We encourage students to stretch beyond their current achievements and points of view, thereby helping them build self-esteem and pride of accomplishment.

The staff is amazing, all the teachers are very sweet and caring. Lots of afternoon classes for all ages that are very convenient.
