Overview

 

At the Young Women’s Leadership Academy, we believe that 100 percent of our students will graduate prepared to enroll and graduate from college and that they will be active participants in their community. We provide students with a college preparatory curriculum and offerings that enrich students’ overall competitiveness and challenge students to engage in deeper independent learning experiences outside of the classroom. Additionally, students receive the necessary support systems to ensure all students experience academic and personal growth. Students work collaboratively to refine their leadership skills through a variety of community service learning experiences with a focus on healthy personal decision-making. Our extracurricular offerings include several student-led and special-interest clubs. These programs support the Academy’s commitment to educating the whole child and to developing our leaders daily.
