The Young Women’s Leadership Academy, San Antonio’s first all-girls public school, opened in August 2008 as a tuition-free, college-preparatory school that focuses on math, science, and technology – fields in which women are typically underrepresented. Over the last fifteen years, YWLA has cemented its status as a rigorous, yet supportive school that empowers young women to discover the leaders within them. At YWLA, students receive a quality education shaped by the core values of college preparation, responsible leadership, and wellness life skills, values that contribute to a well-rounded education that is vital to our students’ success in college. Consistently rated Exemplary by the state since its inception, YWLA is a collaborative effort between SAISD and the Young Women's Preparatory Network.
