Dr. Torri D. Barber, Principal

I am excited to enter into my third year as Principal of York One Academy. Working with the students at York One Academy brings so many benefits in terms of serving students. The students at YOA allows you as an educator to see things from a different lens. At YOA, we believe in the  Process and Progress Moto. We challenge the students daily to reach his or her fullest academic potential. I have this saying, "No student has a lid over their heads"! Our mission at York One Academy is to prepare each student academically, socially, and emotionally by using Restorative Practices and Mindfulness techniques. We will do this through an engaging and challenging curriculum that equips students to be life-long learners. Our team at York One Academy accepts the responsibility for providing a safe learning environment for each student. With this responsibility, we will train our students to be contributors in society and to be confident individuals that will provide them the opportunity to serve their families and communities now and in the future.
