My Children have attended a Christian school of York for the last 2 years and we feel like we've gained a second family. The teachers are not only excellent educators but are patient, kind and loving even in disciplining students. My son, who struggles with some emotional regulation, has always been shown so much love and has grown tremendously because of it. The effort to remain connected to parents through weekly newsletters, in-person conferences, and the online portfolio "seesaw" allowed me to be "in the know" at all times regarding what my child was learning in the classroom. We couldn't be more pleased with the preschool at the Christian School of York and look forward to our oldest beginning kindergarten in the fall!

As alumni and parent- I can confirm that CSY is a great environment to grow up in. The faculty and staff love the children and enjoy spending time teaching them. It feels like a second home and when I leave my kids, there I have every confidence they are getting an amazing education that has God as the foundation.

After sending our child here for 3 years, we couldn't be happier! It is a great environment to learn with small class sizes. The teacher is truly caring and wants to see your child grow and succeed. We value biblical teaching, which reinforces what we teach at home. Our only regret is we didn't do it sooner!

My Children have flourished at CSY. I have the benefit of seeing first hand through my wife and mother-in-law, who are both CSY alumni, the long term impact of a Christian School of York Education. My son has grown a passion for learning and expanding his knowledge of the world. I love that kids are learning in an environment that reinforces the worldview and values we seek to develop at home.

Our daughter is a recent transfer student and we are so excited about her opportunities to take college credit courses, play sports, and participate in awesome field trips and service opportunities.

By far the best school for Christian families who have had enough of the public school nonsense. Your kids can even play sports without the usual `politics`. Kids do not `get away with stuff`. Our kids have thrived here. It`s school like it was when I was a kid. Teachers who teach and love their students but with consistent discipline and a Christian worldview. Give your kids the strong foundation they need to navigate this crazy world successfully. This place literally saved two of my boys from getting on bad paths in life, and even helped save our marriage. Send your kids to CSY. You will not regret it. Your kids are the best, most eternal thing you can invest in.

Switching to CSY was the best decision we ever made for our children. I wish we had done it sooner. We have found the staff to truly care about our kids and go the extra mile to make a difference. Our youngest never liked school and would often feel sick due to school. Within the dirst month at CSY he said "I like school" for the first time ever. I love the support and influence and support of other Chrisitian families.

The Preschool program at CSY is OUTSTANDING! The teachers are loving, caring and great with children. Their curriculum follows the PA Early Learning Standards and best practices for early education. Our oldest child went into the program hesitant and unsure, and within months began to excel socially and emotionally, and not to mention learned a ton! Highly recommended!

My kids really did well in the preschool, which my wife and I loved as parents. We were able to be involved in the classroom quite a bit. The options for extended care and summer camp were great for us, as we are a family with 2 working parents.

After just 2 years of sending our children to Christian School of York, my wife and I couldn't be any happier with the decision! CSY is like no other school in the area. The value gained from a Christian education, the great learning environment our kids get, and just the relationships my wife and I gained with other families, it's like having a second church family.

As we prepare our children for success as they grow up, I believe that partnering with Christian School of York has been the best decision that we as parents could have made. We have watched our children grow academically and spiritually as well as develop deep friendships that have helped them through challenging times that have come our family's way. No place is perfect but CSY has quality, committed staff members that love my children and push them towards excellence.

My three children have been blessed to attend Christian School of York for most of their years of schooling and have graduated from CSY. I praise God every day that they had the love and support of their teachers in the most amazing ways! All 3 are gifted and felt challenged by the programs. The teachers are willing to tailor the programs to keep them challenged. They have each gone to the college of their choice, have graduated and are successful in their careers. People still mention to us how respectful and hard working they are. Looking back I don't know how we did it financially except that the Lord had His hand on all of it. It was worth every sacrifice made. We are blessed. I wish there were some way I could truly thank the teachers and staff who have done so much for our children.
