The Young Men’s Leadership Academy is San Antonio’s first all-boys public school and offers a model of education that is backed by research indicating that boys and girls learn differently. The school helps boys achieve their highest potential by setting high expectations and emphasizing character, leadership and discipline. Each day begins with a firm handshake and continues with a positive message of encouragement in a daily assembly. At YMLA, our students are engaged in an active learning environment. Our 21st-century school design fosters dialogue, promotes collaboration and encourages creativity. We build social-emotional awareness through reflective thinking practices and daily meditation sessions. We are preparing today’s learners to become tomorrow’s leaders.
