    Yorktown Education Gets Results

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Yorktown Education focuses on three things for students:

    First, quality academics from fourth grade through high school.  Just like Harvard and Princeton Universities focus on academics first.

    Second, developing quality people skills for happiness and success. 

    Third, something to love - each student should find their special interest.  Student interests' have included: nationally ranked athletes, international rock climbing, television acting, recording artists, published authors, computer design, engineering and medicine.  Students have even earned credit working with special needs children or with other subjects.

    Yorktown Education wants our graduates to achieve happy, successful and fulfilling lives, as well as success at the college of their choice.

    Yorktown Education gets results:

    “Your school is providing exceptional performance”, Dr. Jackie Jones, Chairman AdvancED/SACS quality review committee.

    More students at Yorktown Education take dual enrollment college courses (as a percentage of seniors) than any other Texas high school.  Yorktown includes the first 12 college course credits in the basic curriculum.

    Every student at Yorktown Education, in a dual enrollment college course, has earned a grade "A" during the first two years of our college program.  It's highest possible academic achievement by a high school.   Last semester we had one high school student earn "only" a "B" grade in college Physics after several "A" grades in his previous college classes.

    Yorktown Education produces great gains in student learning.  Yorktown is offering $1,000 to the first person to introduce another school with equal or better gains for students.  So far, no school been able to beat our standard.

    Almost every student is earning straight A grades for their high school work.

    14 year old students have been scoring at least a 4 on each Advanced Placement exam.  We expect some students may not keep up this unusual record.

    Students as young as 15 years old are earning A grades in AdvancED/SACS accredited dual enrollment college courses.  Colleges consider dual enrollment courses better than the AP advanced placement system.

    How does Yorktown Education gets these results?  With:

    “A caring and nurturing environment for student learning that is individually paced”, official commendation by AdvancED/SACS.

    Expectations for every student to achieve their personal best.

    A calm, cooperative environment where students help fellow students, work in small groups and receive individual attention from teachers. Unlike others schools, students are not ranked and put in competition with each other.

    Students working smarter, more efficiently and with new technologies. Students work with a flexible time table that respects them as individuals.

    Every regular, and gifted, student who follows the program achieves superior results compared to their previous school.

    Yorktown accomplishes more for students, in less time, than traditional schools with “sage on a stage” classroom lecture.

    Encouraging college coursework while in high school. Students can save more in college tuition costs than they spend on Yorktown tuition from the advanced work and scholarships.

    You need to see it and believe it, request a visitOthers copy Yorktown's claims, but they do not use our methods or achieve our results.  Please visit us and understand the program. Yorktown educates differently to achieve better results.

    Yorktown Education can help your "American Dream" come true.

    The Two Types of Private Schools: "Have To" and "Want To"

    Last updated 4 years ago

    While there are numerous reasons to choose a private education for your child, it’s possible that your decision to do so will be met with opposition from your son or daughter. Unfortunately, this type of response can be attributed to a number of myths about what a private school education entails and what is expected of matriculating students.

    To help you persuade your child of the benefits of his or her upcoming private school education and its philosophy, read the following overview:

    Private School Myths

    There are several unfortunate inaccuracies regarding a private school education. Some of the more common claims are that private schools stifle creativity and identity through school uniforms, employ strict instructors, have difficult courses and charge a lot in tuition fees. When confronted with these factors, it is no surprise that children balk at their future academic careers and view attendance as a forced obligation instead of an exciting adventure.

    Private School Realities

    While this may not be applicable across the board for private schools, Yorktown Education values an educational system that caters to the individual wants, desires and needs of each and every student. With this in mind, we’ve succeeded in creating an environment for our student population that encourages their most personal ambitions and allows them to work at their own pace to achieve their goals.

    In addition, extra-curricular activities and social events are emphasized as an important part of the educational process. Through dinners and dances, theatrical productions, stimulating field trips and more, our students are able to both express themselves creatively and take advantage of much-needed social outlets. With all of these components together, we’ve created a school setting that children no longer have to cope with, but one that they truly want to participate in.

    Do you have more questions about the values of our individual institution and how our own students feel about their time with us? Contact Yorktown Education in Plano, Texas at (972) 473-3423, and take a look at our website for more insight into our educational philosophy.
