About Our College

York College of Pennsylvania traces its institutional lineage to the York County Academy, a school opened in the 1770s in downtown York, Pennsylvania that was connected to St. John's Episcopal Church, which was led by Rev. John Andrews, D.D.[7] In 1787, the school received its charter from the General Assembly of Pennsylvania and was incorporated as the York County Academy.[8][9][10] The academy held a close connection with St. John's Church in York from that time until 1799.[11] Thaddeus Stevens taught at the academy in 1815–1816, prior to establishing his law practice and serving as a U.S. congressman.[11]
