York Preparatory Academy is a National Blue Ribbon award winning school.

York Prep also recently earned a 2019 Palmetto Silver award from the S.C. Department of Education.

The 2019 awards recognize school performance during the 2018-’19 school year, according to a release from the state department. Awards are based on scores in recent S.C. school report cards.

For elementary and middle schools to receive a Palmetto Gold or Silver award, they must meet certain ratings for academic achievement and student progress, The Herald previously reported. High school awards consider academic achievement, preparing for success, graduation rate and college/career readiness.

York Prep also earned a Palmetto Silver award for the 2017-’18 school year, based on last year’s state report card.
