York Early College Academy (YECA)


The Mission of the York Early College Academy (YECA) program at York College is to create opportunities for students to acquire the core abilities to be autonomous learners and to facilitate their successful transition from high school into post-secondary institutions. YECA provides traditionally underserved students with access to higher education opportunities and provide the academic and social supports that are needed to graduate high school having earned as many as sixty college credits towards a baccalaureate degree.


  • Provide a program of academically challenging and developmentally appropriate courses to fulfill students’ dual enrollment requirements
  • Maintain a rigorous learning environment by monitoring and assessing the academic performance of students
  • Assist students in their pursuit of educational and occupational opportunities beyond the YECA program.
