Welcome to the official website of Yorktown Community Schools.  Our district is located In Yorktown, Indiana, which is conveniently just minutes away from I-69 and Muncie, Indiana.  Our students come from our own community as well as surrounding communities that have students who qualify to take advantage of transfer tuition. Due to our high expectations and history of excellence in academics and extra-curricular activities, there continues to be a high demand for transfer opportunities to our district.  We offer an impressive curriculum and a plethora of academic programs and services to meet the needs of nearly every student who enters our schools.

Again, welcome to Yorktown Community Schools.  We hope you find our website to be an inviting and resourceful tool.

 A MESSAGE FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT

Welcome to Yorktown Community Schools!

As superintendent of Yorktown Community Schools, I am honored to serve our schools and accept the unwavering obligation to lead.  Having fulfilled the role as a teacher, principal, assistant superintendent, and superintendent of Yorktown, I am proud of our district’s strong commitment to students and the opportunities to which we offer them.  As a district, we pride ourselves on the commitment, excellence, and opportunities which guide our efforts.

I feel privileged to work with such a dedicated group of board members, staff, students and community members who are passionate about education and who hold it in such high regards.  Our Core Beliefs are the untouchables that drive our decision making as we strive to meet the needs of all students. In addition, the best interest of our students is always paramount to such decision making. I appreciate your continued support.

Transfer Tuition 2016-2017
Yorktown Community Schools will set grade level and building capacities prior to February 1, 2016.  Currently, student applications for transfer are being accepted on a space available basis.  For an application, interested parties need to contact central office at 765-759-2720.  Applications will be received and reviewed from now- June 2015.  

 If student-transfer applicants do not fall under any of the exclusionary criteria*, then he/she will be provisionally accepted.  Once Yorktown Community Schools’ registration for residential students and currently attending transfer students is closed in June 2016, a determination will be made whether the student-transfer applicant(s) is admitted or a random drawing is necessary due to capacity.  If a drawing is necessary, it will be held in a public meeting in July 2016.
