York County

The York County School Division is an award-winning school system serving more than 12,500 students in the heart of the Virginia's historic triangle, situated between Virginia Beach and Richmond.

Comprised of 19 schools, the division provides an array of rigorous and diverse programs, that few school systems of similar size can match, such as Elementary Fine Arts and Math, Science, and Technology Magnet schools, as well as the International Baccalaureate program. The York County School Division is also a VA Virtual School approved multi-division online provider.

The York County School Division does not discriminate on the basis of race (Title VI), color, religion, national origin, veteran status, sex, gender (Title IX), age or disability (Section 504), or any other protected class in its educational programs, activities or employment and provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.
