Subject: Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of York College of Pennsylvania
The origins of York College of Pennsylvania (YCP) stretch back over 250 years to 1767 when the Reverend John Andrews began teaching Greek and Latin. Twenty years later, the General Assembly provided the school, then known as the York County Academy, with its official charter. In 1940, the York County Academy merged with the York Collegiate Institute to form York Junior College.

On September 22, 1966, then President Dr. Ray Miller announced that York Junior College would become York County’s first four-year institution. Two years after his announcement, in 1968, York Junior College was fully accredited and officially became York College of Pennsylvania. In the 50 years following their accreditation, York College of Pennsylvania has continued to provide an affordable and quality education.

While YCP strives to provide students with an affordable education, the school offers students a world-class education with many of their programs, including their nursing program, recognized as national leaders in their field. Please join us as we commemorate and recognize YCP as the college celebrates its 50th Anniversary.
