Yorktown Education School

At Yorktown, we want your child to have a fulfilling and inspiring life.
So we take a dramatically different approach to their education.
And it's working.
Because our students are excelling at levels that traditional schools simply can't deliver.
Our education model is student-centered, which means each individual student progresses according to their own accomplishments - academically, socially, personally.
From the development of custom curriculum, to the integration of personal interests and a flexible cohort-based campus environment, every detail is designed to teach students to discover and Do What They Love.
The result? Higher achievement.
And ultimately, happy, engaged, fulfilled children and young adults. And - when we fulfill our vision - a peaceful, more prosperous world for the next generation.
Come experience the different thinking at Yorktown. Now enrolling students in grades K-12.

School Reviews

Top quality academic education including a year of college credit while in high school. Best college grade points in the area. Students receive in depth instruction in their areas of specialty and this leads to the best college admissions and scholarships. If you want an acutal gifted advanced education, this si the school for you. We know we will graduate from Yorktown because our child does his work and is well behaved. After 3 years at the school he has completed his junior year of high school with an A average and he is only 15 years old.
