Principal's Welcome

Dear Central York High School Families:

It is my pleasure to welcome all new and returning families to the 2023-24 school year at Central York High School. The start of each school year provides us the opportunity to set new goals and establish routines of success that will serve students now and well into the future.

Central York School District's mission is to provide a high-quality academic experience within a supportive, valued, collaborative community that promotes students' personal growth and the pursuit of their passions and interests. The High School achieves this through offering a wide range of academic courses which maximize individual growth while developing a student's academic skill set. In addition to academics, we offer many co-curricular opportunities outside of the school day through athletics, clubs, JROTC, and performing arts programs. We encourage students to find their passion and become involved with something outside of the normal school day.

Central York is a great school with many fine traditions. We are committed to preserving a positive climate culture as we maintain high levels of academic achievement. This school year promises to be a continuation of growth and success for all students. Your continued involvement and support are always an essential component in the quality of our programs.

It is wonderful to work with our students and we do understand the trust you place in us by sending them to school every day. I do want to thank you in advance for your continuing cooperation as we work together in Pursuing Excellence: All Panthers. Every Day. In All Ways.

Best wishes,


Dave Czarnecki, Ed.D.
