YCHS is a co-educational, Catholic high school serving Yuma County and surrounding areas. YCHS is currently accredited through Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and AdvancED (NCA).
While YCHS provides a safe, small school environment for approximately 300 students, at the same time, it is comparable to any large high school in terms of the programs that are offered. These programs include but are not limited to Advanced Placement classes, Dual Credit classes offered in partnership with Arizona Western College, honors level classes, seventeen Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) sanctioned sports and activities, and student clubs.
The YCHS Mission Statement, Expected School-wide Learning Results (ESLRs), core philosophy, and nine S.H.A.M.R.O.C.K.S. traits are the guiding forces behind all decisions, programming and disciplinary actions that occur at YCHS.
