"The Social Science faculties, and many Liberal Arts faculty, at America’s colleges and universities are not only overwhelmingly liberal; they are ideological liberals who hold views far to the left of the Democrat Party" said Bishirjian. "The National Association of Scholars, a national association of academics committed to the teaching of Western literature, law, philosophy and history, estimates that only 5% of the faculty at America's colleges and universities are political conservatives. As a result, University students are highly unlikely to learn American politics, economics, history and philosophy from people who share our values. In extreme cases, students are influenced by professors who despise America and who present history as an indictment of all America stands for. To them, the freest, fairest, most prosperous society ever created is a failure. At Yorktownuniversity.com, we believe that an educational system that produces and tolerates such blindness and utter ignorance is an educational failure.”

Bishirjian added, "Our colleges and universities have rejected traditional values and substituted tradition with a new, secular, ideology. Our institutions of higher learning have become bastions of political correctness.” Yorktownuniversity.com is an Internet university—courses will be offered only on the Internet—that has been approved by the State Higher Education Council of Virginia to operate as a university, to enroll students in college level courses for degree credit, and to offer two baccalaureate degrees. Its faculty is made up of scholars who have devoted their professional lives to understanding the philosophy of limited government of the Founding Fathers, and are dedicated to the unbiased study of law, economics, and the history of Western civilization. Yorktownuniversity.com’s Board of Directors and Advisory Board includes prominent conservative leaders: Chairman Paul Weyrich, Gilbert K. Davis, Robert Bradley, Louis Barnett, Richard Bishirjian, Peter Hannaford, Ellen Sauerbrey, and Dr. Wanda Franz. Yorktownuniversity.com has the support of two national, non-profit, educational organizations: the Free Congress Foundation, led by Paul Weyrich, and The Leadership Institute, whose president is Morton Blackwell.

"Our faculty believe that we have a sacred responsibility to our children and to our nation. If we stand by and allow our children and grandchildren to be shaped by a failed educational system, then we will have failed them, and we will have failed our country. How long can we conservatives remain indifferent to the biased education inflicted on our children? How long before we lose our common heritage? If the results of the recent presidential election are evidence, our educated classes have already forgotten the teachings of the Founding Fathers. Just what can we do about it? We can create our own university, one that reflects our values. At Yorktownuniversity.com, we seek truth in the old-fashioned sense of the word — truth that comes only from openness to God, to our fellow man, and with profound respect for the accomplishments of the Founders of our Constitutional order. At Yorktownuniversity.com you will find an education that cannot be found elsewhere.”
