Mrs. Beverly Meares, Coordinator/Principal

I am very excited to enter a new role this year as Coordinator/Principal of York One Academy.  I have over 25 years of experience in York School District One, having spent time at York Junior High, York Middle School, Cotton Belt Elementary, and now York One Academy.  I am a product of this school district and am very fortunate to serve the students and families of my home town. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Education from Winthrop University.  I also returned to Winthrop to earn my Master’s degree in Educational Leadership.   

Our goal at YOA is to give students what they need to be successful at their home schools. Plain and simple…we care about each and every student.  Our dedicated staff meets weekly to provide services to both our students and their families. We believe in our District's mission and live it daily: to Learn, Serve, and Give as ONE!
