Welcome to York Early College Academy! Founded in 2006, York Early College Academy (YECA) was the first and only Early College public school located in South Jamaica Queens. Through our unique partnership with York College, students who attend YECA have the opportunity to graduate high school while also earning up to 60 college credits. As a result of our rigorous program, since our first graduating class of 2013, our alumni have attended top universities throughout the country and pursued careers in the fields of medicine, law, engineering, and journalism. We are so proud of their success!
As a former Teacher, Dean, Assistant Principal and now Principal of York Early College Academy, I am proud to have worked alongside our community to create a thriving learning environment for all students. Currently, YECA has consistently maintained a graduation rate above 95% with 100% of students earning college credits. I believe through our culture of collaboration, high expectations and support, all YECA students can achieve their college and career aspirations.
I would like to encourage all prospective families to learn more about us as well as thank our current families for their continued support.
Dr. Noah Angeles
