York College Acceptance Rate, Average GPA, SAT and ACT Scores

York College was founded in 1787 as the York Academy by a group of prominent citizens from York, Pennsylvania. Initially, the school was a subscription school, meaning that students paid for tuition and were taught by volunteer teachers. As the school grew, it began offering more formal classes and eventually became a full-fledged college. In 1815, the college was officially chartered by the Pennsylvania legislature and renamed York College.

In its early years, York College focused on educating young men for careers in law and medicine. The curriculum included mathematics, Latin, Greek, history and philosophy. However, over time the college expanded its offerings to include courses in business administration, engineering and other disciplines as well as providing instruction in modern languages such as French and Spanish. In 1858 it became one of the first colleges to offer co-educational classes when it began accepting female students. In addition to academics, students could participate in various clubs and organizations such as literary societies which put on plays and debates or athletics teams which competed with other schools in football and baseball. Throughout its history York College has strived to provide a quality education for all of its students while remaining true to its founding principles of excellence and service to others. Check Andyeducation for educational systems in Utah.
