Youngsville High School is one of four secondary campuses operated in Warren County, Pennsylvania, by the Warren County School District. The Youngsville campus was built in 1905 and had its last major set of renovations and additions in 1985.[1]

The school day begins at 8 AM and ends at 3:07PM. The school day is broken into eight periods, plus a homeroom to begin the day and a two-tiered lunch grouping. Most students have one period a day where they attend a study hall instead of a course.

There are three computer labs in the building.

Breakfast and lunch service is offered.
