Seniors must indicate in their Parchment Account which college/university they plan to attend, in order for their final transcripts to be sent after graduation. It is your responsibility, and not that of the CYHS Guidance Office, to make sure that your final transcript has been received by the college/university that you plan to attend.  If your school's orientation program is in early June, there is a good chance that your final transcript will not be available before you attend the program and/or register for classes.  We recommend that you contact your college/university to address this issue before you attend the orientation program.

If you have taken Dual Enrollment or College in the High School classesyou must contact the college/university you attended in order to have your final grades sent to the school you plan to attend.  The CYHS Guidance Office will not do this for you.

Senior Prom Update:  After further discussion and consideration, Seniors will be allowed to bring guests that are not CYHS students. As in the past, guests must be in 9th grade or above, and not be more than 20 years old. Masks must be worn at all times, except to eat, and we will require all guests to maintain the social distancing requirements.  Please note:  Any student planning to bring a guest who is not currently enrolled in Central York High School will need to have a "Dance Guest Agreement Form" completed and approved by administration PRIOR to purchasing the guest ticket.

Checks or money orders should be made payable to “CYHS – Class of 2021.”  Only CYHS seniors will be permitted to purchase tickets, but any senior may bring an underclassman as a guest.  Seating will be assigned when tickets are purchased, and seats may not be reserved for individuals who have yet to purchase their tickets.  All students and guests will be required to maintain proper social distancing for the duration of the event and re-entry to the event will be prohibited.


Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no Post Prom event held this year.


Any student who intends to enlist in the military following graduation, or who has received an ROTC scholarship, should see Ms. Efkovich in the Main Office, beginning on March 31st.  We will need some information from you in regard to ordering a military cord to wear at graduation.

Please come prepared with the name of your recruiter, and a way to contact that person.
