Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon School 2015
We teach our girls responsible leadership and effective decision-making that will contribute to their general well-being. We believe these are integral components to their personal success. While receiving a well-rounded college preparatory education, our young women experience lessons that integrate math, science, and technology across the curriculum.
Women have historically been underrepresented in these career fields and we are committed to developing our community's future leaders in all career fields. We are developing tomorrow’s leaders and empowering young women to achieve their fullest potential with a rigorous college-preparatory education that is free of cost to our students.
We expect every graduate to enroll in a four-year university or college upon graduation. Our students are provided a strong support network to ensure they continue their academic success at the university level.
We aim to grow our family of young leaders with students who are enthusiastic about learning, have a desire to lead and are committed to higher education. Explore this website and see if the San Antonio Young Woman's Leadership Academy is for you.
The Young Women’s Leadership Academy is part of the Young Women's Preparatory Network, a nonprofit organization that partners with public school districts to operate the largest network of all-girls’,
public, college-preparatory schools in the nation. All YWPN schools feature a STEM-focused curriculum, and a majority of students are economically disadvantaged.
The core values are college readiness, leadership and wellness life skills.

A very important part of our school curriculum is our annual summer program. All students are involved in varied grade-appropriate summer activities prior to the first day of school. These "camps" give students a head-start on the material that will be presented during the year and acquaint them with expectations and the daily classroom routine in an effort to ensure a smooth start for the school year.
