History

History-FoundersLogos 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 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
Humans are integrated beings with minds, hearts, bodies, and souls. A Christ-centered education cultivates intelligence and character. Jesus Christ embodies what it means to be fully human-a mind and heart fully dedicated to God and committed to sacrificial love for the life of the world. Through faith in Jesus, humanity finds wholeness and healing. Logos Academy is committed to the historic Christian Faith as defined in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. We are not directly affiliated with any particular denomination or church.

CULTURALLY DIVERSE
God is the Creator of the diverse world He has gifted to humanity. We embrace and celebrate the many different stories and heritages that make up York City and the surrounding communities. Cultural diversity is a gift to be nurtured and enjoyed.

COMMUNITY MINDED
Logos is a special school because of the warm relationships that exist among students, families, faculty, and staff. We desire that the love we share for one another is shared with our community. God calls us to be a good neighbor and to serve the broader York community.

CLASSICALLY TRAINED
With a focus on the liberal arts, the classical tradition trains students toward wisdom, grace, and virtue in service to God’s kingdom. Teachers mentor students toward an exceptional education that cultivates intelligence and character. These relationships are foundational to each student’s growth academically, emotionally, and spiritually.

COLLABORATIVE FAMILY PARTNERSHIPS
God has given parents and families the primary role of raising children. The school is privileged to partner with families and churches to educate the whole child intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
