York School alumni featured in the Wall Street Journal

Several former students of York School were featured in the Wall Street Journal for their senior class project -- a video "Message to My Future Self," which is done as a way to start the college application process.

"For almost two-decades we've been asking our seniors to look into a video camera and respond not only to the question, ‘What do you want to do?’ but more importantly, ‘What kind of person do you want to be?’" said Chuck Harmon, head of school, referring to the project. "Our experience, as well as educational research, confirms that the character traits that students develop are the key factor in their living meaningful lives characterized by success and happiness.”

Fourteen members of the 53-student class of 2004 returned to the York campus this month to reconnect and watch what their teenage selves had planned for the now present future. Their reactions are nicely condensed in the WSJ article, which grouped their reactions based on this question: what do you wish you'd known then?
