York Memorial Collegiate Institute's Mission Statement
York Memorial offers students specialized programs that include the R.U.S.H. (Roadmap to University Success with Honours) Pre - AP and Advanced Placement (AP) programs. We also offer five different SHSMs (Specialist High Skills Major).
York Memorial C.I. offers enhanced pathway courses in its grade 9 and 10 compulsory classes (English, Geography, French, History, Mathematics and Science). This will ensure that every student will have all possible options available to them before choosing their post-secondary pathway. We believe that by setting high expectations, providing additional support for all students, and using teaching strategies that meet individual student’s needs, our students will be in the best possible position to successfully achieve their credits and gain their OSSD (Ontario Secondary School Diploma).
We are a school where tradition and forward thinking converge to shape future leaders and global citizens of tomorrow. We do this by equipping our students with critical thinking skills through a global perspective lens, whilst holding steadfast to our core values of Respect, Accountability, Resilience and Excellence.
