Yorkshire Academy wins their
2019 PSIA District Division!
Yorkshire Academy has competed in the Private School Interscholastic Association (PSIA) since 1998. PSIA motivates students to:
- Find new excitement in learning
- Achieve mastery
- Test their skills and knowledge
- Know the satisfaction of their best performance
- Achieve recognition for academic excellence
Students choose from a variety of subjects, including: art history, creative writing, math, spelling, music memory, and storytelling and then compete against other area private schools on the district level. The top two contestants in each district level contest will advance to the state level (except for Creative Writing and Storytelling, where just the first place students advance).
Yorkshire Academy students have performed exceedingly well in all elementary PSIA District and State Contests. Students have earned numerous state medals, including such impressive honors as top rankings in Art Memory, Creative Writing, Number Sense, Math, Music Memory, Prose Interpretation, Ready Writing, and Storytelling.
In the 2019 school year Yorkshire students won their district division earning 50 medals. Fifteen students advanced to the State Meet held at Texas Christian University in Ft. Worth, Texas and competed in Art Memory, Creative Writing, Math, Music Memory, Number Sense, On-site Drawing, Prose, Ready Writing, and Spelling.
