History

History-FoundersLogos Academy owes its existence and daily sustenance to the mighty hand of God. In 1998, that mighty hand moved in the hearts of two local women, Traci Foster and Connie Rae, to make a difference in the educational crisis plaguing York City. Fueled by faith in Christ, these women poured their passion into the lives of 14 young students that year. Over the next decade, the journey led them to meet in three local churches and introduced Logos Academy to community partners who would provide much needed financial assistance.

Today, Logos Academy serves more than 260 students in grades K-12 on its own campus constructed in 2010 at 250 West King Street. Students and families are welcomed regardless of faith or financial capacity. Last year, 99% of our students received tuition assistance from over $2 million in scholarships. Our goal is to make our vibrant learning community accessible to everyone.

Logos Academy is a private school, registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and accredited by Middle States Association. Logos provides an ideal learning environment in small class sizes through the following five core distinctives.

CHRIST-CENTERED

We seek to know Jesus, be led by His Word and Spirit, and be shaped by the Gospel. We recognize Jesus as the King of all creation. This reality gives meaning and purpose to everything we do. We commit ourselves to showing respect (for God, people, education, and creation), taking responsibility, and seeking to repair the brokenness in our lives and in our world.

CULTURALLY DIVERSE

We recognize and celebrate diversity as a gift from God and a demonstration of God’s love for us. We value diversity in our students, families, staff, and city. God has brought us together from various cultural, socioeconomic, denominational, and educational backgrounds. Divided, we all become weakened and impoverished. Together, we are empowered and enriched, building bridges of brotherhood through the love of Christ.

COMMUNITY MINDED

We foster intentional community between our students, families, and staff. Logos Academy also strives to be a good neighbor to our broader community. Jesus commands us to love our neighbors and to seek the peace and prosperity of our city.

CLASSICALLY EDUCATED

We cultivate students in the Classical tradition of education to become people of wisdom, grace, and virtue in service to God’s Kingdom. This time-tested approach to human formation fosters students who are effective communicators and creative, critical thinkers. As students develop a biblical worldview, they learn to love truth, beauty, and goodness.

COLLABORATIVE FAMILY PARTNERSHIPS

We believe that a participatory family is critical to what we do during the school day. Parents and families are an essential part of the Logos Academy community, and we value each person’s involvement.
