The mission of York College is to provide a quality liberal arts education, equipping students to lead lives of purpose, leadership, and service consistent with Christian ideals. With multiple bachelor's degrees, and an enrollment of around 500 students, each student experiences outstanding opportunities for leadership development. Because of our small size and Christian ideals, every student comes to understand that they are not just a "face in the crowd", but that each individual is needed on our campus. Every student experiences multiple opportunities to get involved in new activities that they may have never tried before. Most students graduate with an increased level of confidence, and a wider variety of abilities than they had upon initial enrollment.
