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 First Place in Creative Writing, Number Sense, Music Memory, Prose Interpretation, and Ready Writing.
In the 2014/2015 school year Yorkshire students placed second in their district division earning 50 medals. Seventeen 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.
